The Foundation’s continuing financial support of the school ensures that children can achieve excellence through the education of their “whole being.” Encouraged by faith and bestowed with a reverence for life, St. Mary’s students help to shape our society as adults and community members.

“St. Mary’s School Foundation is a vital part of our school’s operating budget and scholarship fund. Every year the Foundation has supplied the school with needed funds to cover the cost of unforeseen issues that we would not have been able to pay for out of the general budget. The money has been used to pay for a ten thousand dollar furnace repair, a four thousand dollar handicapped door repair, needed technology and security upgrades and staff training to name a few. The importance of the Foundation is most evident when I have meetings with parents that have tears of joy because the Foundation is making it financially possible for their children to attend St. Mary’s. If it wasn’t for the Foundation, we would be unable to reach our educational and spiritual goals.”

“To this day, I rely on the witness, teachings, and wisdom that I gained in my years at St. Mary’s and Seton Catholic. I am so happy and blessed to be a priest! God gave me a chance to give back from 1996 to 1999 when I actually got to teach religion classes at St. Mary’s and to serve at St. Mary’s Cathedral. Those years were such a gift to me!”
