Being Catholic is a gift of faith, hope and love; a life-time journey to experience and to live according to the identity that it signifies.
Education in Catholic schools—which includes a parish community and faith practiced in the home—exists to implement a specific educational ideal: to foster a deepening of faith and knowledge to be used to give witness to Christ.
Following the teaching of Holy Mother Church, Catholic education, then, strengthens Catholic Christians to live and to do their proper roles in the life of the Church in the world. It provides a sound knowledge of the Catholic faith and a sure understanding of Catholic moral and social teaching in the lifelong journey of prayer and contemplation.
