Why Donate?

The Cathedral of St. Mary Catholic School has educated children in the light of Christ for more than 75 years. Clearly our world has changed since 1939; yet, our commitment to offering a rigorous, faith-centered education to all families has not changed.  Our mission continues to be one of opening the doors of Catholic education to all children, regardless of the financial circumstances of the families.

The Cathedral of St. Mary Catholic School nurtures, affirms, and challenges the students in their pursuit of learning and the responsibilities of faith and citizenship. It is a mission that the staff at St. Mary pursues with fervor and zeal.  Yet, it is also a mission we cannot do without your generous support.  As a benefactor you continue to be a blessing to The Cathedral of St. Mary Catholic School and your gift makes it possible for us to meet the needs of our diverse socio-economic community.

The Cathedral of St. Mary Catholic School takes pride in opening up the benefits of Catholic education to many families who are normally precluded from the advantages of a rigorous academic and faith-centered education.  Not surprisingly the economy continues to be challenging for many of our families who continue to make education a top priority and do their best to make the financial commitment to assist their children in obtaining a Catholic education.  Your gifts continue to be needed more than ever this year and your support is essential to the success of our school.
