MISSION STATEMENT

 FOR CATHOLIC SCHOOLS

DIOCESE OF BELLEVILLE

 

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Belleville support and participate in the mission of the Church, especially as lived, in parish communities.  Our Catholic schools exist to proclaim the Gospel, to teach the doctrinal tradition and moral standards of the Church, to promote life-long intellectual growth, social development, and faith formation.  All of these include in our times a commitment to social justice, global solidarity, and a preferential option for the poor.  Catholic schools promote the development of the whole person; body, mind and spirit, and foster the entire development of human life.  The example and teachings of Jesus Christ provide the inspiration and context of education in our schools.
