Send your Holy Spirit to help others to respond generously and courageously to your call. May our community of faith support vocations of sacrificial love in our youth and young adults. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Pope Francis said that “every Christian is challenged to be actively engaged in evangelization”. This evangelization can only take place when we examine our own relationship with Jesus. Catholic Schools are essential to carry out the church’s mission of evangelization. At St. Benedict Catholic School, we offer students a faith-based education. Gospel Values are taught throughout the curriculum. Students have a chance to be excited about their faith, to befriend others and to offer others the friendship of Jesus.
