Showing Faith in the Future
The Foundation of St. Charles is an exciting addition to the Comet legacy that will address the need for stable, long term financial support for the school we call home. Through the yearly giving of our community members, St. Charles Catholic will truly thrive as the spiritual, educational, technological, and cultural leader of the River Parishes. Our faith teaches us that with God we have the strength to do anything, and he calls us to trust in His vision, joining together to serve as the Body of Christ for our region, our nation, and our world.
The Foundation of St. Charles is our opportunity to build a legacy of community-mindedness and love from generation to generation here at SCC. Our Comet family is as deep as it is wide, welcoming everyone in and offering everyone the chance to become what God has made them to be. To continue in this mission, we must be honest with our community and offer an invitation to assist in our daily needs as to secure a greater hope for the eternal realities awaiting us. In other words, we have to help each other get to Heaven.
We hope to engage with present Comet parents and grandparents, with Comet alumni and their families, and also with the broader community of Christians and educators who understand the value of the work we do here. As Pope Benedict XVI reminds us, “No child should be denied his or her right to an education in faith, which in turn nurtures the soul of a nation.”
Through the committed giving of our community members, we can ensure that our tuition is never a barrier to any family hoping to provide their child a Catholic education, and we continue to provide the outstanding education that is offering our students a chance to recognize God's plans for their lives.
The Foundation's purpose is three fold:
