Our Faith

Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila

Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing frighten you
All things pass away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who has God
Finds he lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

 

-Virtues-

A Year of Virtues in Safe, Caring, and Inclusive School Communities


The notion of virtue is deeply rooted in Catholic Christian tradition.  A virtue is a habit or established capability to perform good actions according to a moral standard.  In other words, a virtue is a habit that shows people and God that I am a good person. Virtue is increased by practice and prayer.  By practicing the virtues, we develop habits of goodness that prepare us to contribute to the good of our school communities and of all people. 

In a school community, virtue formation contributes to a healthy positive learning environment by fostering a climate in which all members feel safe, confident, and hope-filled about themselves, their relationships and their futures.  By praying, we receive the grace of God to continue to concentrate on finding ways to follow Jesus' example in all that we say and do. 

As this year goes by we will work together and grow together to become an even greater school.  We'll try to become a more virtuous and safe school.

Each month we will look at developing one of these virtues:

September - Faith   

February - Respect

October - Empathy

March - Kindness

November - Conscience 

April - Love

December - Hope

May - Acceptance

January - Self-Control

June - Fairness
