"I am the way, the truth and the life"
(John 14:6)
 
At St. Mary's we place our children at the 
heart of all we do
inspired by the love, life and teachings of Jesus
and the Catholic Christian Church.
"Everyone seems to be in such a terrible rush,
so that children have very little time
for their parents, parents for each other, and in the
home begins the disruption of peace in the world."
Mother Teresa
"Having children makes you no more of a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist."
