“Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.” Proverbs 22:6
WE BELIEVE that the students at Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School have many wonderful experiences and opportunities that help prepare them for their future: excellent academics, exceptional athletics, and engaging extra-curricular programs. Perhaps the most important activity that we provide to our students that will help develop them into an ideal adult is our extensive commitment to service.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus himself was the ultimate model of living a life of service. “For who is greater: the one seated at table or the one who serves? Is it not the one seated at table? I am among you as the one who serves.” (Luke 22:27). Through the many bible stories we have read and heard during Mass, we know that Jesus walked away from what we would consider a normal life of family and work, and ventured out for a life of service. He healed the sick, he converted the sinner, he counseled, he prayed… he performed the ultimate service in giving of his own life to forgive our many sins.
WE BELIEVE that it is never too early to teach children about the amazing grace received through giving of ourselves. Jesus valued children and knew the importance of modeling for our children. He said, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14). It is because of this, SLS has an extensive service program that begins with our PreK students and extends each year through 8th grade. We provide these age-appropriate opportunities to our children to show them the importance of service for others and to develop in them a genuine and intrinsic desire to be charitable to the less fortunate, just as Jesus did.
WE BELIEVE it is our responsibility to serve as a way to thank God for our abundant blessings. “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10). Why wouldn’t we want to share our gifts, talents, and treasures with others, especially in their time of need?
WE BELIEVE that each of us is called by God to serve, and to “serve one another through love.” (Galatians 5:13). Mother Teresa once said, “Good works are links that form a chain of love.” In this day and age, when we are surrounded by so many negative messages and images in our society, we need to counter with love. We may individually only be able to do one small act of love, but together, combining all of our small acts of love, we can do great things. What a great way to honor Jesus and all he gave for us.
