Catholic Identity


Integral to our understanding of our Catholic Faith is involvement in loving Christian Service and Stewardship to others. It is incumbent on us, as a Catholic School, to include service and stewardship opportunities for our children at each step of their educational experience at Saint Mary Academy. To this end, our students are involved in service and stewardship activities in the parish, local, and global communities. Social Justice is an integral part of our service program at Saint Mary Academy. Students in Grades 4-8 have the honor of participating as a server in school and parish liturgies. Students must receive yearly training to be servers.
