Our Mission Statement

The Mission Statement for St. Mary's Catholic Parish Church "is to extend the Kingdom of God through our church community by growing in faith, love and service".

St. Mary's Catholic Parish School exists as a vital part of the parish's ministry to support families in the total education of their children. Its goal is to encourage and challenge our students to grow tangibly in their relationship with God, as they strive to be life-long learners. We encourage our students to endeavor to achieve their highest personal and academic potential. Our school serves as an evangelization arm for the parish. In working with students, with parents and community, we encourage and support families to live their faith fully.

Philosophy Guiding Catholic Schools in Idaho

We are a community of faith that nourishes each child’s spiritual, academic, physical, social and emotional growth. Our school serves as an evangelization arm for the parish. In working with students, parents and the community, we encourage and support families to live their faith fully. Non-Catholic students are fully welcome, and we respect their beliefs. All students are encouraged to share their thoughts throughout the curriculum and are welcome to participate in religious ceremonies, including weekly Mass.

The Three R's

Begin with letter R

They lead our faith, our truth, our life

You’ll know us from afar

RESPECT’S the word that leads the way

We’re courteous, patient, polite

It helps us all to get along

And always know what’s right

RESPONSIBILITY shows and grows

Our work’s on time and neat

We’re prepared and homework’s always done

We learn and never cheat

RESOURCEFULNESS the final rule

We serve and help each other

Our gifts will build community

And show Jesus is our brother

Come See What Our Way of Life is All About.
