St Cornelius School
- St. Cornelius School has provided quality Catholic education to the Richmond community for fifty-six years.
- It was created in the late 1940's by Catholic families who wanted a school for their children. On August 24, 1948, the school was opened and five Sisters of Notre Dame were commissioned as its first teachers.
- The school successfully operated under the Notre Dame Sisters until they were reassigned to Southern California in 1985.
- In that year, a school board was appointed and the first lay faculty was developed.
- In 1989 a full time pastor was assigned to the parish.
- Since then the school has been educating students under the guidance of the pastor, principal and lay faculty.
