At Mount de Sales, our goal is to encourage every student, teacher, and parent to a relationship with the saving person of Jesus Christ. Steeped in the shared inheritance of St. Francis de Sales and St. Dominic, at Mount de Sales our approach is to propose, not impose, the faith by revealing it in all its beauty, truth, and goodness. Like the sower in the Gospel, we want to prepare the soil so that the grace of Christ can take root in the hearts of our students. We seek to offer our students opportunities where they can hear His voice—through prayer, through solid and dynamic religious instruction, through participation in the life of the sacraments and through service to others. Our prayer is that each young woman will leave Mount de Sales Academy more convinced of her own dignity and worth in Christ and that she will respond to His specific and unique call in her life.
“Dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundredfold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ – and you will find true life. Amen.”
- Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
Mission Statement of Campus Ministry:
Campus Ministry creates an environment in which the student desires to participate in the Catholic faith. Since there is a harmony between the religion department and campus ministry, the student is not only learning about the faith, but is given the opportunity to practice it. The mission of Campus Ministry is to inspire every girl at Mount de Sales to become who they are created to be by God; the goal is that she may know that she is magnificent, she is loved, she is worthy and she is unrepeatable because she is a daughter of the King.
Campus Ministry provides a comfortable atmosphere where girls can incorporate their faith into every aspect of their lives and come to know Jesus Christ in a truly personal way.
“Do NOT be satisfied with mediocrity! The world will offer you comfort. But you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness!”
- John Paul II
