The MORE Factor


Mission Ordered towards Reaching Eternal life.


“In the spirit of Blessed John Paul II’s call for a New Evangelization, Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Kalamazoo desire to respond to this transformative invitation to holiness with a firm and renewed zeal. As a multi-culturally diverse institution, we joyfully embrace the universal vocation to holiness. We are a community centered in the Eucharistic Christ and an educational system of the highest standards, rooted in our Catholic faith. Our goal is to equip students with an excellent education and a solid faith formation so each student may know the faith confidently, live the faith in a community where families and teachers work together to advocate for each other's salvation and Sainthood, and share the faith with relevance and loving courage throughout their lives.”

 Year of Faith
"In his apostolic letter Porta Fidei (October 11, 2012), Pope Benedict XVI announced a Year of Faith to begin on October 11, 2012, and end on November 24, 2013.  As part of this special year, he calls on all Catholics to renew their faith in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, in the teachings of Christ and in the doctrines of the Church" (Pacwa 2012).
