KNOWLEDGE OF SELF IN RELATION TO GOD, OTHERS, AND CREATION
Humility is St. Benedict’s word for wisdom. It is an accurate appraisal of one’s strengths and weaknesses before God, before others, and before oneself. We seek to cultivate the exploration of truth in academic disciplines, aware that through a rigorous and wide-ranging pursuit of academic excellence, we are all made freer to discern and cultivate the gifts we possess, thereby contributing to the well-being of all.
RESPONSIBLE USE OF CREATION, CULTURE, AND THE ARTS
We foster good stewardship of our environment and our talents out of respect for God’s creation. The world with its bountiful resources and each person with his or her unique talents have been created by God for the sake of us all. We strive to encourage the study and practice of the arts, aware of their capacity to develop in us a deeper recognition of the nature and purpose of life itself.
