    Cathedral Parent Council Mission Statement

    The Cathedral Parent Association welcomes all parents/guardians of Cathedral students to membership. The Association meets monthly to facilitate the interaction and collaboration of Cathedral parents and families, in a spiritual environment, always for the ultimate good of the school.

    Cathedral Association Purpose

    The Parent Association is the primary organization of all parents/guardians of students of Cathedral High School. The Association allows parents/guardians to become involved in the work of the school by providing volunteer opportunities and by encouraging parental participation. The Executive Board of the Association, The Parent Council, coordinates many activities on behalf of both parents and school.

    Activities include:

    • Acting as a resource for faculty and staff;
    • Coordinating parent volunteers in many areas of school life;
    • Fostering and maintaining parent-to-parent and parent-to-school communication;
    • Sponsoring events of interest to school parents.

    Cathedral Parent Association Goals Statement

    The goals of the CHS Parent Association, in consultation with the school’s leadership, are to conduct activities to support the achievement of the school’s goals and the recognition of the school’s administration, staff and faculty.

    More specifically, Parent Council plans events for CHS staff, parents/guardians and students, which includes such things as Post Prom Party, and topic specific speakers for parents and/or students. We also support CHS faculty and staff with conference meals twice a year, monthly treats in their lunch room, and by providing grants for classroom needs funded by the sale of CHS’s annual phone books.

    Monthly meetings are held for parents/guardians every second Tuesday of the month beginning in September and continuing through April. At our meetings we share information about CHS, have guest speakers who provide pertinent information about our school, and allow parents/guardians to keep in touch with what is going on at school.

  • Service Learning Program / Logging Volunteer Hours

    In the words of the U.S. Bishops, “Catholic school students should be introduced gradually to the idea and practice of Christian service. In early years, efforts to instill a sense of mission and concern for others help lay a foundation for later service projects, as does study of the lives of the saints and outstanding contemporaries.” Sharing the Light, #232.

    At Cathedral, we believe that service should be an attitude, a way of life, and every person has a calling and a responsibility to serve one another as a living example of Jesus’ teachings. It is important not only to listen and understand the Word of God, but also to apply the lessons learned in our daily life through service to others.

    We will use the Corporal Works of Mercy, Spiritual Works of Mercy and the Principles of Catholic Social Teachings as the basis for our Service Learning Program.  All service learning experiences will be related to these models of Christian living, and students will be asked to reflect on the connections between their service experience and these models.

    Corporal Works of Mercy

    The Corporal Works of Mercy recognize the sacredness of human life. We learn through fulfilling these Works of Mercy for others that we are our brother’s keeper. Our feelings of love for our fellow man must be accompanied by acts of charity.

    (1) Feed the hungry. 

    (2) Give drink to the thirsty. 

    (3) Clothe the naked. 

    (4) Shelter the homeless. 

    (5) Visit those in prison. 

    (6) Comfort the sick. 

    (7) Bury the dead.

    Spiritual Works of Mercy

    The Spiritual Works of Mercy recognize sin, ignorance, doubt, sorrow and other human conditions where we need to reach out in faith and love to others. How many times did Jesus rebuke with love, counsel, teach and help those who did not know Him?

    (1) Admonish sinners. 

    (2) Instruct the uninformed.

    (3) Counsel the doubtful. 

    (4) Comfort the sorrowful. 

    (5) Bear wrongs patiently. 

    (6) Forgive offenses. 

    (7) Pray for the living and the dead.

    Catholic Social Teaching Principles

    The Catholic Social Teaching Principles are a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society. These principals highlight several of the key themes that are at the heart of our Catholic social tradition.

    (1) Life and Dignity of the Human Person.

    (2) Solidarity.

    (3) Care for God’s creation.

    (4) Call to Family, Community and Participation.

    (5) Option for the Poor and Vulnerable.

    (6) Rights and Responsibilities.

    (7) Dignity of Work and Rights of Worked
