Pope Francis has condemned the “sin of racism” and also stated, “We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form. Silence during these times is tolerance.” In light of the current events happening across our country and the world, St. Paul Catholic High School stands in solidarity with Pope Francis and the Catholic Church against all forms of injustice.
We PRAY for peace, civility and an end to the violence erupting across our country in response to the tragic death of George Floyd and others. May hope be restored, respect for life preserved, racism eradicated and justice served. We believe every person is made in the image and likeness of God and has value and worth.
Our St. Paul Class of 2020, their families and the entire St. Paul community were invited to watch the pre-recorded commencement exercises from the Cathedral of St. Joseph, Hartford. On June 2, 2020, our graduates enjoyed a “campus parade” seeing faculty, staff, and receiving their diplomas (pictures to come). Sit back, relax, and enjoy the Class of 2020’s historic commencement ceremony.
During this Coronavirus Crisis, St. Paul administration has taken steps in these unprecedented times to continue with the school’s mission of educating young minds, hearts and spirits, albeit in an unconventional way.
As we continue to deal with the outbreak of COVID-19, the St. Paul community is connected through online learning, “after-school” virtual meetings, virtual Chapel Prayer service & social media conversations.
It is the goal, as always to live our five core values each and every day. Faith, Character, Community, Excellence, and Service.
The health and safety of our students, faculty and the entire St. Paul community is of utmost importance to us. Our hope is that closing our school contributes to slowing the spread of this virus throughout our region and state. Be assured, we will stay in contact with you during this unprecedented time. We pray for the health and well-being of all of our students, their families and all those effected during this global crisis. Stay well. – Mr. Cary Dupont ’72 President/Chief Administrator
In these last two months of distance learning, quarantining and being away from social interaction, St. Paul student government, club advisers and even Stella (our fantastic lunch guru) have kept our students engaged.
Friends “see” each other at game nights, cooking classes, chess club, sewing club, cake decorating, bingo nights, movie night, and many more. See some of the activities they have creatively come up with (and more to come)…
Señora LeBron-Rojas’ Spanish III class was asked to create a visual with descriptions in Spanish as to what each of the students have been doing during the quarantine. Students were to use correct grammar and tenses while writing descriptions.
Christ is the reason for St. Paul Catholic High School. Upon this foundation, young men and women from diverse backgrounds are challenged to be their personal best in academics, athletics, fine arts, and service to others, as they prepare for the rigors of college and lifelong learning. The St. Paul community is distinguished by the respect, care, and encouragement members give each other to achieve moments of greatness.
