The School Theme for the academic year 2016-17 is MERCY - THE SPRING OF DIVINE GOODNESS.
On December 8, 2015 Pope Francis opened the Jubilee Year of Mercy. He describes this year as a time when "we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives"
It is in the mystery of mercy that we find tireless source of joy and peace. Mercy is where our salvation is found, it is where we encounter the living God and where we truly recognize one another as brothers and sisters on the path of life. Mercy is "the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness"
As a school, we have made Mercy the theme for the year. Each day we begin and end by reflecting on our call to be "merciful as the Father is merciful".
This Holy year is an occasion to practice great acts of mercy. We have concerted plans as a school and as a family to practice spiritual and corporal works of mercy through service projects.
We want our students to spread the beautiful message of compassion, forgiveness, healing and hope through their words and actions.
