Pastor's Welcome

Thanks for visiting the website of St. Catherine of Siena School!

 

As Pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Parish, and as an alumnus of St. Catherine of Siena School (Class of 1990), I could not be happier to extend to you this personal invitation to explore what makes our school so special.   

 

Whether you’re new to the area, or whether you’ve been living here for years, I hope you’ll discover in St. Catherine’s what generations of families have known: that St. Catherine’s is a safe and nurturing environment in which children are formed not only in the academic disciplines, but also in the Catholic faith, in wisdom, and in respect. 

 

A United States Department of Education Blue Ribbon School, St. Catherine’s features a sought-after Pre-K program which continues to grow each year.  Children of all ages receive at St. Catherine’s a strong foundation for lives of excellence, integrity, and virtue.

 

Our Patroness, St. Catherine of Siena, lived in the 13th century, and was one of the most remarkable women in the history of the Church.  Her life, faith, and example guide us still today.  She once famously said:  “Start being brave about everything. Drive out darkness and spread light. Don’t look at your weaknesses.  Realize instead that, in Christ crucified, you can do everything.”

 

God bless you!
