Our Catholic Identity
Our Catholic faith is the heart and soul of everything we do at Holy Family Catholic Schools. We start every day with prayer, and our faith and core Christian values steer us from there. We recognize that we stand on the shoulders of the men and women religious, faithful community members and dedicated educators who have come before us to make Catholic education in Dubuque possible, and thus we make it our mission to foster the leaders of tomorrow’s Church.
How Do We Demonstrate Our Faith at School?
- Every school day begins and ends in prayer.
- Students pray before meals.
- All students take religion courses.
- Students take ownership of regular Mass planning, even at the elementary level.
- Reconciliation is celebrated twice a year.
- Retreat and renewal opportunities are available to middle and high school students.
- We find opportunities to serve throughout the year, and our student body completes more than 150 service projects a year.
