The measure of our success as a school, is if our students make a strong commitment to school work, take a Christian approach in dealings with their peers, participate in the vibrant life of the school, then we as staff and parents have succeeded; succeeded jointly in producing an individual of strong character who will be a positive contributor and a leader in tomorrow’s society.

Our Patron Saint
Saint Martha was Mary’s sister. She lived in Bethany, a small town near Jerusalem. When Jesus preached in Judea he would often visit their home. Many believe Martha may have been the elder in the family, as she directed the household duties and made sure Jesus and other guests were comfortable.
Martha’s faith never wavered as she went out to meet Jesus on the road after the death of her brother Lazarus. She still believed that Jesus could bring him back to life and that God would grant Jesus whatever He asked.
Jesus said to Martha “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever lives and believes in me will live and never die. Do you believe this?” Martha in the ultimate act of faith replied, “Yes, Lord. I have
come to believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God.”
According to legend, after Jesus’ death, Martha, Mary and Lazarus continued to tell others about the words and powers of Jesus. Martha is the patroness of housewives, innkeepers, waiters and cooks.
Prayer to St. Martha
O Blessed St. Martha, who had the happiness of serving the Divine Master in your own home at Bethany, obtain for us the grace to serve God with love and fidelity. May we share in the faith which enabled you to recognize Christ as the Son of God. May our hope be as strong as yours when you trusted Him, even though He seemed to fail you. And may our love of God grow and be expressed, as was yours, in loving service of others.
St. Martha, model of all who desire to serve God in faith, hope and love, obtain for us the grace of final perseverance.
We look forward to working with you and trust that this will be a rewarding educational experience for your child.
