We are a Catholic School system, called to work in partnership with home, parish and community, on our journey to understand and live the way of Jesus Christ. We are committed to excellence in Catholic education and to lifelong learning, so that those with whom we journey may become caring and contributing citizens in a world of constant challenge.
Our Catholic faith is made visible in all subject areas through the infusion of Catholic Social Teachings, virtues and gospel values into daily learning experiences. The Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations guide the learning journey for all students.

At St. Patrick Catholic School we put Faith into Action on a daily basis. Our school theme of "With God's love we can make the world a better place" was developed so that staff and students can anchor their daily actions and interactions around making the world a better.
How we have brought this theme alive:
1) We developed a school prayer that each class has a hand in developing. Here is our prayer:
ST. PATRICK CATHOLIC SCHOOL – School Prayer
With God's love ...
We can help one another.
We can do chores and keep
the school tidy.
We will try not to sin.
We will show compassion and
treat others with kindness.
With God's love...
We will act and speak like Jesus did.
We will let His light shine within
us for everyone to see.
We will show empathy to others
by trying to understand how they feel.
We will treat everyone how
we would want to be treated.
With God's love...

others to show that we care.
We can lend a hand, share
with others and give unconditionally.
We can accomplish anything by
spreading peace worldwide.
With God's love…

2) With the permission of our school Priest, Father Bill Steacy, we changed our Responsorial Psalm at mass to "With God's love…We can make the world a better place.", which we sing
3) Teacher have made a concerted effort to link the message in school to their everyday teachings and try to link this to life in the school.
