Statement of Purpose
Education at Saint Thomas Aquinas is not limited to the classroom. In the classroom the students learn the Catholic faith, but they are also called to answer the Gospel message by living it as disciples of Christ.
We, as disciples of Christ’s hand in the present age, are called to reach out to all people in love and to assist those in need. In order to do this, students must be encouraged to carry their mission beyond the school walls.
Service outside the school challenges the student to learn more about their community and its needs. Christian discipleship should arouse in them a sense of responsibility for spreading the Gospel. The focus of the “Catholic Outreach” program is to encourage students to emulate the actions of Jesus; showing compassion and empathy in order to relieve the burdens of others.
