Service is a Vital Part of our Catholic Faith
Our students understand that service is a vital part of our faith. Each student is encouraged to perform good deeds for others.
These actions make a direct connection with this year’s theme, focusing on the Beatitudes, as we extend our hands to others displaying kindness, generosity and love.
Pope Francis encourages us to reach out to share our faith with others and provide service for others. Sacred Heart provides a wonderful environment filled with students who care about their families, their school and parish community, and most importantly, their God.
We strive to accept all who enter our doors with open arms and helping hands, eager to share our love with others. We are passionate about our school and possess a great deal of compassion for others. Come walk with us this school year as we strive to become what God envisions us all to be.
At Sacred Heart of Jesus School, we focus on serving others, as Christ did.
