All Faith Backgrounds are Welcome!

Empowering and Supporting Spiritual Growth through Faith

By EC Marketing and Communications Staff

At Eastside Catholic, we embrace the charism of St. Francis of Assisi within the Catholic tradition and practice inclusivity by welcoming students of all faith backgrounds. We believe each member of our diverse community brings unique gifts that can be used to foster personal, communal and spiritual growth. Grounded in the Gospel of Jesus and unconditional love, we live this mission through formal liturgy and informal ministries of presence, service and relationship formation.

Contributing to the Eastside Catholic family invites commitment to:

  • Bring one's whole self to a community that values and fosters the growth of the person God has called us to be.
  • Nurture one's interior life, rooted in the Gospel and person of Jesus, welcoming all and learning from all.
  • Cultivate the body, mind, and soul through prayer, study, and extracurricular activities.
  • Be an instrument of God's peace and justice in our hearts, our relationships, our communities and our world.

At EC, members of our faculty and staff have organized a Catholic Identity working group that meets once a month to pray and discuss ways on bringing this Identity statement to life in our school and community. A member of the Catholic Identity working group recently shared her thoughts about being a part of this dynamic group.

I love being a part of the Catholic Identity working group at EC. I enjoy helping bring Catholic values and traditions to our Eastside Catholic community and working with this group has brought me closer to my faith.
