It is the mission of St. Rose of Lima Catholic Elementary School to challenge students to welcome and value the involvement of all that have an interest in our community, to challenge students to excellence in everything they do spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically, grow in respect for self, others, authority and property and develop Catholic leadership skills.
The school, which is dedicated to St. Rose of Lima, the patron saint of Latin America and the Philippines, was blessed on October 18, 1987, by Fr. D. M. O’Neill of St. Ignatius of Loyola. St. Rose of Lima lives out its motto, "Learning Together," in a variety of programs. Leadership opportunities allow all students to model faith through our Catholic virtues, sponsorship of families at Christmas, and social justice initiatives which include fundraising for ShareLife, Terry Fox, Toys for Tots as well as participation in food drives for Eden Food for Change, Dr, Simone's Warehouse and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
St Rose of Lima is a part of Merciful Redeemer Parish. The St. Rose of Lima community is enriched by the spiritual leadership of our Parish priests at masses and to mark our student’s initiation into the sacraments as part of their spiritual journey. We also benefit from Church leadership and support for our Intermediate students in various Youth Programs.
