Discover the Difference...
The third apple of our logo represents what makes us different and is symbolic of who we are.
When cut horizontally, the apple has five core seeds:
First Core Seed: Formators
Parents, as primary religious educators
Pastors/pastoral leaders, principals, catechetical leaders, teachers, parish staff and entire community are formators
Second Core Seed: The Religion Curriculum
Taught from K-12 in a consistent, age-appropriate way in each of our 101 schools; consists of 8 strands:
- Church - Doctrine
- Lifestyles - Old Testament
- Morality - New Testament
- Sacraments & Prayer - Social Teachings / Justice
Third Core Seed: Community
Our schools are communities where students are loved and respected; where Christian behavior is expected, differences are celebrated, and families are welcomed.
Fouth Core Seed: Worship
Students attend Mass regularly and begin each day and each class with prayer. We celebrate together our common faith; we welcome those other faiths.
Fifth Core Seed: Service
Students are challenged to reach beyond themselves in service and works of justice to the poor, the sick, and the underprivileged.
