Strategic Plan - Catholic Identity

The Catholic Identity Committee advises the Pastor and School Principal in support of a total parish vision for building Catholic Christian identity, which is formed through sound catechesis in the foundations of the Catholic faith, rooted in full, active and conscious participation in the liturgy and actualized in lifelong discipleship and service to others, in all members of the Saint Paul School Community.

Objective 1

Parents as Primary Educators of the Faith

Empower and support the parents of St. Paul School community to be the primary educators of the faith to their children. Our goal is provide faith formation tools and resources for both parents and child in this effort. We will look to “The Four Pillars of the Catholic Church” as the source of all faith formation efforts: Profession of Faith, Celebration of the Christian Mystery, Life in Christ, and Christian Prayer.

Strategy 2

Provide Parents and Families with the means and opportunity to serve as the primary educators of the faith.

Seek student opportunities to participate in active, hands appropriate, prayerful service in the school, parish, and the larger community.
