One of the most distinctive features of our Roman Catholic faith is our Church's rich tradition of social teaching. It is critical to the unique profile of Catholic education that this teaching be explicitly integrated not only into the curriculum but also into the overall life of our school communities.
Our students, staff, parents, trustees, and pastors have traditionally involved themselves in a wide range of social action activities. Whether it is a food or clothing drive, a class discussion about poverty in our world, or participation in a public demonstration, our Catholic schools demonstrate consistent leadership in these areas.
At St. Mary Catholic School we showcase our commitment to social justice through a variety of initiatives. We support The Terry Fox Foundation, The United Way, Three Oaks Women's Shelter, Sandy Pines Wildlife, The Christmas Sharing Program and The Gleaners Food Bank to name a few.
