The purpose of a formal Catholic education is founded upon the fact that everyone is created in the image of God and mirrors God’s presence revealed through truth, beauty and goodness. Everyone therefore is treated with the dignity of Jesus Christ. The joyful celebration of the Mass and sacraments are an affirmation of our dignity. The sacramentals are sacred signs embedded in our faith in action. The Catholic faith is a joyful faith because of the Resurrection. Therefore, all instruction is designed to embody the optimism and joyfulness of the journey to eternal life with God the Father as developed through our relationship with Jesus Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit.
