Students (pictured above) gathered after school to pray the rosary for all the deceased members of our St. Catherine's students, Alumni, benefactors, family and friend. The name of the deceased were read aloud as we prayed the decades of the rosary in both English and Spanish. People gathered after in Angel Ally for refreshments including, Pan e Muertos, "bread of the dead", a Mexican pastry traditionally served on this day. Students plan to gather again to pray the Rosary for all our needs on Our Lady of Guadalupe's Feast Day, December 12th. Refreshments will follow in Angel Alley.
Faith life is paramount at St. Catherine's, evident every day in the curriculum and the interactions of students and teachers.
The community of SC affirms that education is a primary means of carrying out the mission of Christ to teach and live love of God and love of neighbor in our diverse global community, thereby building a society based on justice and peace. As part of the people of God, we therefore strive to provide an education which includes:
an emphasis on the faith-life and more development of the students,
a concern for the individual needs of the learner,
an atmosphere which fosters care and respect for self and others,
a commitment to justice and peace.
Campus Ministry students at St. Catherine's are involved with everything from planning the school's liturgies and prayers services, to conducting various drives and fundraisers, to youth ministry.
