As a parochial Catholic school, Sacred Heart Cathedral School is the largest mission of Sacred Heart Cathedral. We are privileged to educate the first worshippers in our new Cathedral and proud to be the only school in the United States currently connected to the construction of a new Cathedral!
How many Catholic schools have the regular involvement and loving support of… our pastor who is also vicar general for the diocese; two associate pastors; three deacons; our Bishop; a Cardinal; and two Sisters of Mercy? We are blessed by the example of holy men and women in our school.
Each student in our school attends Mass twice weekly – once with the grade level, and once with the whole school. Our students plan our Masses with their teachers, and they serve as cantors, lectors, gift bearers and altar servers at each Mass. We study the Catholic faith through a formal religion curriculum every day, pray together daily, and study a different virtue each month; children receive “virtue slips” for putting virtues into action. Students have many opportunities to participate in acts of service to our community (Middle Schoolers performed over 3500 hours of service in 2016-17) and to take courses in Middle School centered on the themes of service and Catholic leadership.
