This quote from St. Francis is posted on their school website which illustrates the way they strive to carry out this experience for children and their families.

“How nice it is to feel that our school, or the places where we gather, are a second home. This is not only important for you, but also for your families. School then ends up being one big family. A family where, together with our mothers and fathers, our grandparents, our teachers and friends, we learn to help one another, to share our good qualities, to give the best of ourselves, to work as a team, for that is very important, and to pursue our dreams.” -Pope Francis’s message to children at Our Lady of the Angels School, Harlem, NY – Oct 2015
