A BRIEF HISTORY
The Dominican Order was founded by St. Dominic de Guzman in the 13th century in France. As with all religious communities, many things have changed over the span of its 800 years, but its core principles and goals remain true to Dominic’s vision.
Dominicans seek to bring gospel-revealed Truth (Veritas) and their passion for God to others. They do this in a variety of ways that perhaps are best understood through the Four Pillars.
The Four Pillars give us insight into Dominican spirituality and its flexibility in response to God and the challenges of the day.
The Four Pillars stand for :
Prayer, Study, Community and Preaching
Fostering both communal and personal spirituality and prayer
Providing a strong spiritual foundation based on Catholic tradition and teachings
Respecting all people in a spirit of ecumenism and interfaith dialogue
Celebrating the joy, hope and sanctity of life
Motivating students to a love of learning through creative and critical thinking
Developing intellectual curiosity and competence in each student
Providing a welcome and safe learning environment of trust and fairness
Studying and addressing the significant social justice issues of our day
Providing an outreaching school community based on shared values of faith, integrity, compassion, and service
Promoting and embracing an awareness of and involvement in the cultural, economic, ethnic, religious and physical diversity in the school, local, national, and global communities
Building a strong and nurturing school community where all are valued and all live in a spirit of collaboration and cooperation
Promoting community involvement to support and enhance the mission of the school
Witnessing to Gospel values and living Veritas through word and deed
Answering the call to study and address issues of peace, justice, and care of the earth
Assuming personal leadership and acting with integrity and compassion
Developing a lifelong commitment of service to God and others
“We have been a part of St. Mary’s school since 2014, and wouldn’t have it any other way. The curriculum that St. Mary’s offers is exactly what we are wanting for our children. One thing that really stands out to us is how invested the staff is in helping the students become the best version of themselves, not only academically but in their everyday lives as well. We look forward to what the future holds for our kids here at St. Mary’s. Go Angels!”
