Inspired by Christ’s words, "I came that they may have life and have it to the full," we dedicate our apostolate of education to the education of others and of ourselves.
We believe that every facet of life is important-Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, and Emotional.
We believe that every child is unique and valuable because his/her life comes from God.
We believe that one of the purposes of life is to improve the quality of life for all people everywhere.
We believe that if we have helped a child to become more human, more able to believe in the ultimate value of life, more hopeful, then we have prepared him/her for life..
