Our Faith

As a Catholic school community, our faith at St. Francis Catholic School is mirrored in a variety of activities that range from morning reflective readings during opening announcements to school-wide or classroom-based liturgies which are enhanced through active student and staff participation. A student choir leads us in song for major Eucharistic celebrations. Parents and family members are invited and are welcome to join us for worship and prayer. We enjoy a strong partnership with Holy Name of Jesus Church with Father Ken Gauthier and with Monsigneur Norm Clement our Board Chaplain.

The core Christian values of care, concern and respect are the cornerstones of spiritual development and growth within our school. The outward demonstration of these values is underscored by a warm and welcoming atmosphere that greets all who enter our school. Outward demonstrations of our involvement beyond our school community include food collections, fund-raising for L.I.P.I., the Santa Fund and Peace and Development.

Our aspiration is that through prayer, direction, instruction and demonstration, the students of St. Francis Catholic School will grow into a way of living that is in keeping with the gospel teachings of Jesus Christ.

~ School Prayer ~

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
