“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth….” Genesis 1:1
As we study Science, we have the advantage of learning about God’s amazing creation from a Catholic Christian viewpoint. We emphasize that the human person is created with dignity and should be treated with respect in all stages of life. We give students opportunities to be good stewards of God’s creation.
Students also begin to evaluate the advances in science and technology that improve God’s creation and preserve the sacredness of human life. They begin to look discerningly at those advances that spoil the simple harmony of God’s world and those that do not uphold the dignity of the human person. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2292-2295; 2415-2418)
Our beautiful new science lab provides an exciting place for our students to experience hands activities and to put the scientific process into practice. The lab is well equipped with new microscopes, slides, dissection equipment, engineering sets, mitosis and meiosis kits, weather equipment, and numerous other teaching tools to help make the study of science come alive. The science lab and its equipment were made possible by generous grants from Cargill, S&R, the St. Mary’s parish community through the support of the annual auction Fund-a-Need, and anonymous donors.
Prayer for the Intercession of St. Albert the Great
Dear Scientist and Doctor of the Church, natural science always led you to the higher science of God.
Though you had an encyclopedic knowledge, it never made you proud, for you regarded it as a gift of God.
Inspire scientists to use their gifts well in studying the wonders of creation, thus bettering the lot of the human race and rendering greater glory to God.
