Holy Ghost Catholic School founded in 1912, was opened by five Dominican sisters as St. Thomas Aquinas School.
The 30 students who enrolled that year were taught in the convent.
Funds solicited from the church in 1913 helped to build a frame building with four rooms which serviced the parish for 37 years with eight grades.
To Continue the tradition of developing well-educated, responsible Christian individuals through a strong academic program and a warm, caring environment that fosters self-esteem and compassion for all people.
Holy Ghost School was named from the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Ghost / Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is symbolic of peace and security.
The members of our community ask in prayer, schoolwork, or in leisure that the Holy Sprit guides us and is the center of our school life.
Our school has always been ruled by the Dominican Order.
The founder of the order was St. Dominic Guzman who was born in Calruega, Spain, in 1170.
The purpose of creating this order was to preach the good news of Jesus and the salvation of souls.
The Dominican Order was approved by the Church in 1217, when Pope Honorius III gave Dominic the title of "Order of Preachers." There are currently about 800,000 members of the Dominican Family world wide.
This includes sisters, nuns, priests, brothers, laity, and associates.
Dominicans are found on every continent.
The four pillars of the Dominican life are: prayer, preaching, contemplation, and community.
