"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Campaign for the High School

Last weekend the parish of St. Vincent's Cathedral Church officially launched its capital campaign to assist our school with its efforts to complete the Upper School building this year. We will be adding a ninth grade next year, part of our plan to offer a complete pre-kindergarten to 12th grade education at SVCS by 2010. The parish and school have made the responsible decision not to take on any further debt in order to finish the high school facility. When money is raised, we will build. The image above is the second floor of the Upper School building, where the high school grades will be taught (Middle School is taught on the ground floor of the building and its facility is complete--and very nice). The high school level is essentially an empty shell right now, though the plumbing is already in place. In the photo Dean Ryan Reed is greeting the guests at a wine-and-cheese open house on the second floor. Enthusiasm for the future at St. Vincent's Cathedral School is high!
