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. Martha Catholic School we showcase our commitment to social justice through various initiatives. Each year we select three local organizations to support: one to reflect our strong and long-standing connection to our military families, one to recognize the importance of mental health services, and one to support the St. Vincent DePaul society's work in Kingston.
