Responsibilities, Duties, Code of Ethics
Respect, grounded in our human dignity, must be modeled and promoted by all school employees, catechists and representatives of schools and Parish Schools of Religion. Student behavior should exhibit these values. Sins against human dignity (ex. racism) are unacceptable. The Cardinal virtues of prudence, temperance, fortitude and justice should be exhibited and nurtured by all employees and catechists. The fruits of the Holy Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control Gal. 5:22-23) should be enfleshed within our Catholic schools and Parish Schools of Religion.
