In concert with long-held principles of the Catholic Church, Saint Patrick Catholic School embraces the role of education in developing the whole child to better know, love, and serve God and neighbor with their whole heart, mind, body, and soul.
With this understanding of education as formation, Saint Patrick is committed to providing opportunities for students to take part in Christian servant leadership. We encourage students, both as individuals and as a group, to initiate acts of service, particularly those aligned with helping the less fortunate.
In developing compassion and a commitment to service, students better recognize the needs of our local and global community while empathizing with them as brothers and sisters in our common human family.
Students’ commitment to service is theologically centered on “building the Kingdom of God” here on Earth and embracing Jesus’ challenge in Matthew's Gospel when He said, "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Students are immersed in a culture of service in their classrooms, the dining hall, in Chapel, at their own churches, and in our neighborhood communities. This dedicated commitment to others, built from a faith foundation, helps form leaders who can view the world from a heart of compassion and responsibility. These are the leaders that the world needs and is why "servant leadership in Christ" and an immersion in a culture of service is a priority at Saint Patrick.
