Catholic Faith

Growing in the Trinity: Love, Mercy & Grace

Our faith theme celebrates the unique mission and identity of our Catholic school division and offers opportunities to inspire and engage students, families, and staff, animating our ongoing journey of faith with excitement, hope, and joy. It provides a focus for faith learning, spiritual development, community building, and service.

Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools’ three-year faith theme for  2023-2026 is: Growing in the Trinity: Love, Mercy & Grace

“Growing in the Trinity” provides a framework within which we meditate on the mystery of the Trinity, and grow in our understanding of, and relationship with each person of the Holy Trinity. As we focus on the love of the Father, the mercy of the Son, and the action of the Spirit (who pours grace nto our hearts), we see ourselves at the center, growing and thriving.

Our Catholic Schools Welcome All Families. Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools is honored, and proud to serve the students and families of Legal, Morinville, and St. Albert in providing a welcoming, Christ centered learning community. Foundational to Catholic education is the idea that regardless of a person’s faith experiences, background, and culture, all children are individually unique and the school has a mission to help each student to fulfill their God-given potential in all aspects of their person: physically, academically, socially, morally and spiritually (from Council of Catholic School Superintendents of Alberta - “Life Framework”).

In our schools, faith is more than a subject. It is an experience lived out, and shared in community. f you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact: Colin Loiselle, Religious Education Consultant | 780-459-7711

Our Patron Saint

St. Joseph

St. Joseph is the patron saint for Neil M. Ross. St. Joseph, according to Christian tradition, was not the biological father of Jesus; he served as his foster-father and as head of the Holy Family.  The gospels describe Joseph as a “tekton” (τεκτων); traditionally the word has been taken to mean “carpenter”. In Roman Catholic traditions, Joseph is the patron saint of workers and we celebrate his Feast day on March 19th.  He was declared to be the patron saint and protector of the Catholic Church. (Pope Pius IX in 1870)

Our School Prayer

Neil M Ross is a special place. Bless our school. Bless the people in it.

Let Neil M. Ross be a place of peace.

Let each of us see God, in every person that we meet.

Let us treat each other with understanding and respect.

As we celebrate the joy of learning, guide us to be the best that we can be,

While, Together we build tomorrow in God’s love.
