For over a century, St. Patrick Catholic School has served as a beacon of the Light of Knowledge in Lewis County. In our 104 academic years, we have educated thousands of students, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, equipping them with the skills and values they need to become productive members of society in Christ-centered environment of sound learning. Not only do our students continue to engage in a rigorous academic program, but they are imbued with a comprehensive understanding of the Faith that is put into practice in their daily interactions. The Catholic/Christian character of our environment, combined with a strong educational program sets St. Patrick’s apart from any other institution in our area.
Here at St. Patrick’s, we do not simply talk about religion. A more accurate description is to see us as a religious community within an academic setting. Our days begin and end with prayer. Classes attend daily Mass throughout the week, with the whole school gathering to worship on Fridays. From our youngest to our most senior students, all are taught to participate actively and engage spiritually through prayer, meditation, and engagement in various ministries.
I am extremely proud of our Parish School and the accomplishments of all our students. Both in and out of the classroom, they represent the very best of what it means to be good Christians and good citizens. Our faculty, staff, and parent volunteers are unmatched in their dedication and commitment to providing a quality Catholic education, and they are largely responsible for the 100+ years of success we have enjoyed.
I thank you for considering a St. Patrick’s education for your child, and our community looks forward to welcoming you.
With every good wish, I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. James R. DeViese, Jr., JCL
Parish Priest, St. Patrick Catholic Church
