St. Francis of Assisi School is a joyful and authentically Catholic school that is rooted in an experience of the good, the true and the beautiful. Our community serves God by our charisms to live a life of virtue, to love Our Lord especially as He is found in the Holy Eucharist, and to experience His peace by trusting in His will.
St. Francis of Assisi School’s charisms are:
- To Love Our Lord especially in the Eucharist
- To Live a Life of Virtue
- To Experience the Peace of Christ
At the root of our charisms is a belief in the real presence of Jesus Christ on earth. It is the knowledge that He came to save us, and that – in a real sense – all is right with humanity and the world. We worship Him in the Eucharist; we change our lives by practicing the virtues; and we find peace in His authority, love and guidance.
Emblem & Motto
St. Francis of Assisi School does not have a traditional crest. We utilize an image of St. Francis wearing his robe with inviting arms open to the world. In the image we have chosen, one can see the wounds of Christ or stigmata that Francis bore for love of Our Lord.
Around St. Francis is our school name and motto: to experience the peace of Christ. Our motto reflects our charism to put our Faith in Christ, to trust in Him and thus to experience His peace.
