In a society where decisions are made based on desire, emotion and pleasure, Mater Salvatoris educates its students in the culture of truth, consistency and endeavour. In this way, when these young people are convinced by a cause, they devote themselves to it whole heartedly and unconditionally.
For this reason, motivation, order, consistency and a mixture of joy and wonder are the most useful tools for fostering will.
Nurturing feelings and emotions is a fundamental aspect of human development. If intelligence is the light of the spirit, then the heart is its strength. We shape students whose hearts rejoice with truth, beauty, positive emotions, and affection. In short, hearts that are able to sense, feel, seek, and experience love.
In a hurried, superficial world one must make space for reflection and silence, as a special way to discover God. The School’s timetable includes the necessary catechesis for receiving two Sacraments:
Also, we educate the love of the Virgin Mary. The School is entrusted to Her protection and it is under Her title, Mater Salvatoris, that this model has been established to offer students profound faith, absolute trust in God, and the power to offer themselves. She helps us on our day-to-day path.
In accordance with St Ignatius of Loyola’s teaching that “Love is better expressed in actions than words”, one of the facets of the Christian faith the School seeks to develop in all students is compassion for those most in need. This is embodied by charity campaigns, such as Domund, Childhood Missionary, the Christmas Campaign or the Great Food Collection.
One of the School’s primary concerns in terms of spiritual development is that religious practice does not feel like something that is imposed externally, but is rather a free and loving response to God, who loved us first.
