At the cornerstone of everything we do at Cataldo is our faith. We welcome the fact that as many at 25% of our students are non-Catholics and truly believe “All are welcome here!” And yet, we never compromise on our Christian values and adherence to Catholic Social Teachings.
Catholic schools have had an enormous impact in the United States and around the world by providing faith-based schools and universities with the highest of academic standards. Cataldo is proud to be one of the 5,638 elementary schools in the U.S.. The rich tradition of Catholic education spans continents and generations ~ we look forward to 100 more years! (For recent statistics on Catholic schools in America, visit the National Catholic Education Association website.)
♥ Religious education class exists at every grade level, including preschool.
♥ Weekly Mass, prayer services, morning and meal-time prayer reinforce a deep relationship with God.
♥ Special events such as Stations of the Cross, Passion Play, and Seder Meal (6th grade) demonstrate to students our commitment to the church and to the historical aspect of religion.
Sacramental preparation is however, a function of the individual parishes. Cataldo will provide information regarding registration and upcoming events at St. Augustine’s, Sacred Heart, and The Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes via our InTouch weekly newsletter, but we respect that the pastors want children to celebrate sacraments with their Parish Family and the children there who may not attend Catholic school.
