One of the fundamental realities of the Catholic Church is that she is apostolic. This means that, like the Apostles, all members of the Church share in the mission of being “sent out” to spread the Kingdom of Christ on earth.
The “Living the Faith” program has been developed at Cedar Catholic to help form students according to the mission of the Gospel so that they might become contributing members of society and effect a positive Christian influence upon it.
This program gives the students the opportunity to explore their own gifts and talents in an active way and allows them to be cultivated according to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. In this way Cedar Catholic hopes to aid each student in uncovering his or her own vocation of love and service on the way to salvation.
Furthermore, Cedar Catholic desires that its students be a visible witness within the community of what it means to live the Christian life fully and unashamedly—not for the sake of being “seen” but for the sake of being imitated as Christian models of holiness.
Therefore, all Cedar Catholic students are required to give of their time and talents in outward, visible service to neighbor. Because we are “sent out” by the command of our Savior, these good works motivated by faith should extend beyond the home and family into the community.
