A Christian life built on the Beatitudes
“I see a special light around the sick, the poor, and the less fortunate, a light that we do not possess.”
-Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
A love for God, a love for friends, a love for life, a love for all creation
“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
- John 15:15
A love for the Eucharist and a life of Prayer
“With all the strength of my soul I urge you young people to approach the Communion table as often as you can. Feed on this bread of angels and from it you will gain the strength to fight your inner battle, the battle against passion and all adversities, because Jesus Christ has promised to those who feed on the Holy Eucharist eternal life and the graces necessary to obtain it.”
- Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
Sharing in the Mission of Christ
“Jesus comes to me every day in Communion, and I return the visit by going to serve the poor.”
- Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati
Reach for the Heights - “verso l’alto”
“By yourself you can do nothing; but if you have God as the center of your every action then…you will reach the goal.” - Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati

The Archdiocese of Chicago and the Office of Catholic Schools chooses a theme each year to encourage a unified effort to support Catholic education across the Chicagoland area. The chosen theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Faith to Move Mountains.” As Christ tells us in the 17th Chapter of Matthew, God’s faith can help us to do great things. Even faith as small as a “mustard seed” can enable us to move mountains! As we look to the future of our schools with confidence, we know we have some mountains to move. Momentum is building in spite of all challenges, and our faith provides us with constant strength and comfort.
