Catholic Identity

St. Francis Central Catholic School exists first and foremost for the education of our young people in the Catholic Faith. It is our responsibility to coordinate this process on all levels and in every aspect of the life of our school. St. Francis will provide ample opportunity for the students to attend Masses and the Sacraments, to be offered opportunities for retreats and service work. Furthermore, we will begin and end each day with a prayer. St. Francis Central Catholic will nurture a healthy spiritual life in the students of our school.

Students are invited to be actively involved in the organization of prayer services and liturgies as well as volunteer service. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are available and are celebrated regularly. Besides daily school prayer, there are class liturgies, special liturgies, and special prayer services during the year for parents and students. St. Francis also offers all students opportunities to participate in service and social injustice work.

Catholic identity at St. Francis Central Catholic is rooted in relationships, whether the relationships are with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the Church; family; friends; or society as a whole. Follow the links to the side to see how these relationships are fostered in countless ways.

The central curriculum of St. Francis Central Catholic and the core of our Catholic identity are the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy!
