Through activities both inside and outside of the classroom, our schools cultivate a lifelong commitment to serving others, particularly the less fortunate among us. Through service, our students learn empathy, kindness, respect for others and oneself, the ability to distinguish right from wrong, and how to practice values that help them lead good lives and become a positive force in the world.
All of our high schools have very active campus ministry programs that develop and deepen their personal relationships with Christ by providing students with opportunities for service to others within the school and outside communities. Collectively, our students dedicate tens of thousands of hours to community service across the Diocese of Fall River and beyond.
"A sense of values and respect for others — that's what my children get here. And these are some of the things that end up being huge later in life."Linda Borges, teacher, St. Michael
"I feel it's important to give children a solid foundation in their faith and academic life. I love the way we teach morals, values and compassion. Christian living is embedded in all we do."Patty Coady, teacher, St. Stanislaus
