Dear Parents, Friends, and Alumni of St. Mary’s School,
Welcome to the St. Mary’s School web site. We are pleased to share a little about our school, but please know that coming to St. Mary’s and seeing the students engaged in learning is worth more than anything a website can convey.
It is a delight to greet the students each morning and to see them literally bound from their cars and run into the school. Smiles, hugs, and handshakes are a great way to start the day!
The younger students are always willing to talk with you in the hall and tell you what their hypothesis is as they conduct an experiment in the hallway, but even the middle school students will engage in conversation and show genuine interest in adults.
This shows that, at the heart of all we do at St. Mary’s, is the foundational principle that each person is made in the image and likeness of God. That is really the key to life and to heaven: recognizing Christ in every person and treating each one as Jesus did.
Perhaps this is what Jesus meant when He said, “Let the children come, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these!” ~ Matthew 19:14
Whether you have visited St. Mary’s School once or a thousand times, we invite you to come and see the difference that is St. Mary’s School –  where we believe, the journey matters!
Sincerely in Christ,
Sister Marie Blanchette, O.P.
