Bringing Our Mission to Life
The four pillars of human and spiritual development are represented by the symbols within our school seal. These symbols both capture what has long been familiar to friends of OLMC, and represent the fullness of the mission being accomplished on a daily basis at the school.
Traditionally in religious art, the circular shape reflects the truth of eternity, without beginning or end, the goal for which we are created and toward which we freely and willingly direct our lives in cooperation with God’s will for each of us. The goal of a Catholic education is to fully develop the capacities of intellect and will, in order to fulfill the mission entrusted to each of us in this world, through the use of all of our God-given talents and gifts, and finally, to be saints in the world that is to come.
Each of the four symbols within the circle represents one of the four pillars of human and spiritual development, derived from the time-tested teaching of the spiritual masters, and specifically in accord with the charism of the Dominican Order, which guides the life of our school. The four pillars are Prayer, Study, Community, and Service.
