Value Themed Goals
Four C’s Cornerstone Prayer
O Jesus, my Holy Redeemer,
I offer You this day all my thoughts, words, desires and actions.
Help me so that I may always…
…speak and act with courtesy.
…treat others with compassion.
…show commitment to my faith, family, school work and activities.
…build up our community by loving others as myself for the love of You.
Christ Jesus, strengthen me so that I may grow closer to You each day. Amen.
At Holy Redeemer School, we begin each day with our Four C’s Cornerstone Prayer, dedicating ourselves to Jesus and petitioning for His help as we work to build a Christ-centered community characterized by courtesy, compassion and commitment. We invite our school families to adopt our Cornerstone prayer as we work together—parents, faculty, and priests—to foster our students’ growth in Christian prayer, values, practices, and service. We seek our parents’ support in emphasizing at home these cornerstone characteristics of Christian attitudes and conduct.
At each grade level, students explore developmentally appropriate ways to act with courtesy, show compassion, demonstrate commitment and serve the community. The Four C’s inform teaching across the curriculum and serve as behavioral standards throughout school life. The power of surrounding our children with this shared message is only surpassed by the power of prayer. Together, we are striving to build up our community, providing our children with every opportunity to develop spiritually in a community “where caring makes a difference”.
“Go RED—Respect Everyone Daily!” This is Holy Redeemer School’s rallying cry, encouraging cheer, and affirmation for personal conduct that exemplifies courtesy, compassion, commitment and community service. Whether in the classroom or on the athletic field, in church or on stage, a Holy Redeemer student who acts with courtesy, shows compassion, demonstrates commitment, and serves the community is doing the “RED” thing. Rooted in Christian scripture, the following verses are the foundations for “Go RED!”:
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations...” Matthew 28: 19
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12
“Honor everyone. Love the community… Fear God.” 1 Peter 2:17
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
