We have an established Catholic Community of Caring based on the values of faith, caring, respect, responsibility, trust and family. The Catholic Community of Caring focuses on building respectful and compassionate school environments, rooted in Catholic values.
Within our school, we are building more inclusive communities where respect for one another, our community and our diversity are celebrated. Using these values as building blocks, we create a positive school community by developing relationships through activities such as student leadership, social justice projects and professional development opportunities.
Through the incorporation of its essential elements into the daily life of school, a climate is created where the whole school community embraces these values. Our priority is to ensure that all of our students are provided with a safe and caring school environment where they can excel and be healthy and productive learners.

Sacrament Dates for 2016-2017 School Year
Lent is a special time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter. Since the earlies times of the Church, there is evidence of some kind of Lenten preparation for Easter. Although the practices may have evolved over the centuries, the focus remains the same: to repent of sin, to renew our faith and to prepare to celebrate joyfully the mysteries of our salvation. Moreover, an emphasis must be placed on performing spiritual works, like attending the Stations of the Cross, attending Mass, making a weekly holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament, taking time for personal prayer and spiritual reading and most especially making a good confession and receiving sacramental absolution.
