Mission & History

Mission

prayerThe Saints Faith, Hope & Charity Parish’s mission statement is “Led by the Spirit to live the Gospel, our mission is to be a welcoming Catholic Christian community gathered around the Eucharist, committed to lifelong faith formation, justice and loving service to others.” Our school mission is to provide an educational environment which develops the spiritual, academic, moral, and social growth of each student. We provide an atmosphere which encourages self-discipline, respect for the talents of others, recognition of students as individuals, and exposure to sound and healthy Christian values. Our goals are:
  • To develop our students’ understanding of and loyalty to the teaching and heritage of the Roman Catholic faith, to help them acquire Catholic moral and spiritual values, and to provide them with opportunities for prayer and worship.
  • To foster our students’ understanding of knowledge and culture, encourage the powers to reason independently, solve problems, be creative, and to accept responsibility for self-evaluation and continued self-instruction.
  • To help our students gain a sense of responsibility for their home, school, community and country. Underlying all the efforts to attain these goals is the belief that each student realizes his/her God-given potential to its fullest.
