Our Patron Saint
Hilda was born (614 A. D.) into royalty but her infancy was filled with tragedy. Yet, her mother dreamed about a precious jewel. Hilda’s life was to become that jewel.
Hilda’s mission began with her baptism at the age of thirteen. Being a Christian meant deliverance, hope and joy. Hilda embraced the faith and mysteries of Christ and lived a peaceful life for many years as she learned and followed the teachings of Christ.
Beginning in 633, Christians suffered persecution and death for their faith. Hilda spent the following ten years of her life in turbulence.
At thirty-three, Hilda went to live in a monastery where she learned that inequality and poverty were to be addressed by justice, charity and peace. Hilda’s monastery was the model school that brought about a strong commitment to the poor. Hilda taught with passion and compassion until her death on November 17, 680, her feast day.
St. Hilda is a great inspiration to our school. She was an exemplary teacher and provided an excellent education which accommodated every type of learner. Christ was the focal point of her teachings. The education we at St. Hilda provide our students is permeated with the teachings of Christ. Like St. Hilda, our teachers are inspired to provide the best education for our students.
