SMC’s Chaplaincy Team

At SMC, we believe that every child is special and that ‘the child is at the center of everything we do.’  At the heart of our school is our Catholic faith and we strive to ensure that the children develop spiritually and morally as well as academically, physically, socially and creatively.

We are a school and church community whose mission statement calls us to:

“Love one another as I have loved you.” – John 13:34-35

​We strive to live out the Gospel values of respect, honesty, and truth in our daily lives.
