MISSION OF OUR LADY OF VICTORIES CATHOLIC SCHOOL

With loyalty and dedication, we are devoted to the command of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre: 

 

“We have to build, while the others are demolishing. The crumbled citadels have to be rebuilt, the bastions of Faith have to be reconstructed; firstly the holy sacrifice of the Mass of all times, which forms saints; then our chapels, our monasteries, our large families, our enterprises faithful to the social politics of the Church, our politicians determined to make the politics of Jesus Christ – this is a whole tissue of Christian social life, Christian customs, Christian reflexes, which we have to restore.” 

 

Our Lady of Victories Catholic School  was founded to provide the pupil with an education that is one with the mind of Holy Church.  In an age in which even the Church is abandoning its traditional methods and its Tradition, the school firmly adheres to these methods and teachings and offers to the pupil this formation.  Consistent with the mind of the Church, the school seeks to deliver to the pupil an academically rigorous course of study such that the pupil is prepared to conduct his life in conformance with God’s plan for him. 

 

As Pope Pius XI stated in Divini Illius Magistri

“It is therefore as important to make no mistake in education, as it is to make no mistake in the pursuit of the last end, with which the whole work of education is intimately and necessarily connected. In fact, since education consists essentially in preparing man for what he must be and for what he must do here below, in order to attain the sublime end for which he was created, it is clear that there can be no true education which is not wholly directed to man's last end, and that in the present order of Providence, since God has revealed Himself to us in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, Who alone is ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life,’ there can be no ideally perfect education which is not Christian education.”  

 

Hence, the mission of the school is to provide the pupil with a Catholic education, both moral and intellectual, preparing him to achieve, by God’s grace, those things necessary for his eternal salvation.   

 

The wisdom of the Church in education is expressed with precision and clearness in the Codex of Canon Law, (can. 1113):

 

"Parents are under a grave obligation to see to the religious and moral education of their children, as well as to their physical and civic training, as far as they can, and moreover to provide for their temporal well-being." 

 

The school, therefore, is an effective agent of the Church, the family, and society to mold and fashion the pupil giving clear principles, personal courage and an unbreakable union between religion and life.  The school is likewise the environment in which education is given.  It is necessary to ensure the conditions which surround the pupil during the period of his formation correspond exactly to the end proposed.  The exclusion of false ideologies and bad influences is imperative.  

 

The teacher is the agent of the school to bring about proper education and environment.  The role of the teacher is to instruct, inform, and direct the pupil, not only in the area of knowledge, but also in the area of morals and virtue.  The true educator forms the mind and the will of the pupil.  The teacher is not present in a passive capacity, but rather is active and determined in an informative approach.   It is false to assert the pupil educates himself, as if he will infallibly find the true and the good, and consequently always choose it.

 

 Learning or science (scientia) is the achievement of the school’s goals and mission in the mind and the will of the pupil. 

 

 “What is there in the life of humanity that is more transcendent than education?  The child or youth is a hope, a hope full of promise for his family, for his fatherland, for the whole of human society, but at the same time a precious hope for the Church, for heaven, for God Himself, to whose image and likeness he was made, whose son he either is or ought to be.  In order that this hope may not fail, but come to full realization, he must be educated and properly formed.  Physical education that strengthens the energies of the body; intellectual education that develops and enriches the resources of the mind; above all, moral and religious education that enlightens and guides the intellect, forms and strengthens the will, trains and sanctifies the character and thus gives to the image of God a resemblance to the divine prototype which renders it worthy of dwelling in the eternal mansions.” (Pope Pius XII)
