Message from our Pastor Administrator
Dear Parents & Friends of St. Mary Catholic School,
For over one hundred years, St. Mary Catholic School has provided Catholic education for generations of students. Our Parish community recognizes the parents and family as primary educators and joins with them in providing an excellent Catholic school to assist them in forming their children in an environment of living faith.
In the present society in which we live, our school is needed more than ever before to teach basic moral values and to ensure that the deposit of faith, given to us by Jesus Christ, is transmitted to our children in its entirety. These values can only be found and taught in our homes and in St. Mary Catholic School.
Our school engages in an ongoing process of evaluation, certification, and accreditation of both teachers and programs. Their accountability guarantees the continuation of our tradition of high educational, moral and Catholic standards.
St. Mary Catholic School is committed to the development of the whole student. Extra-curricular activities are regarded as an important part of the total learning experience. A variety of choices are offered to reflect the uniqueness of each student, to generate a healthy sense of competition, to create a spirit of cooperation, and to foster leadership and creativity; yet our school is different because it is truly “Catholic”.
I encourage your continued support of Saint Mary School for the generations to come. I beg you to do your part in helping advance the educational mission of our parish and of the entire Church: support St. Mary Catholic School.
As we begin another school year, I invoke God’s blessing on Saint Mary School, our principal, our teachers and staff, and our students. May all of us come closer to the Lord in our journey of Faith.
Monsignor John Michael Campbell
Rector, Basilica of St. Mary of the Assumption
