 The Heart of Catholic Education

Our Catholic school employees have hearts of stewards; they give of their time, talent and treasure every day. Our certified and support personnel facilitate the education of our Catholic school children at compensation rates below that of surrounding school systems, but show results that excel in comparison. They demonstrate skills, commitment, dedication and professionalism. They demonstrate a call to serve. This stewardship brings life to our children and our employees, alike.

 
In the end, it does not only bring life, but is a way of living one's life. To reference language from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, "... this commitment is expressed not in a single action, nor even in a number of actions over a period of time, but in an entire way of life."

We thank our pastors, parents and guardians for supporting our Catholic schools in the Diocese of Greensburg as we lead the way in forming our children in the teachings of Jesus. On behalf of the innumerable children and families that have been positively impacted by our Catholic schools, we thank our Catholic school employees for living lives dedicated to the growth and formation of our school children.​
