Strategic Pillar: Faith
As part of the MTC 2015-2020 strategic plan, we have clearly laid out a foundational element aligned to faith formation. The goal is simple: Expand the devotion and tradition of the Church.
MTC provides a Christ-centered education that nurtures students’ faith and prepares students to face the challenges of today’s rapidly changing society. Faith is integrated into all areas of education through participation at Mass, liturgical events, sacramental preparation, daily prayer and service projects.
At MTC, our Catholic identity remains at the forefront of who we are and what we are called to be. We emphasize Christian principles, in both our curricular and extra curricular activities, which provide meaning and purpose to every student’s educational experience and promotes growth in wisdom, knowledge and grace.
We are living in an information-driven society which bombards us indiscriminately with data—all treated as being of equal importance—and which leads to remarkable superficiality in the area of moral discernment. In response, we need to provide an education which teaches critical thinking and encourages the development of mature moral values.– Pope Francis, from Evangelii gaudium
Proclaiming Christ means showing that to believe in and to follow him is not only something right and true, but also something beautiful, capable of filling life with new splendour and profound joy, even in the midst of difficulties. Every expression of true beauty can thus be acknowledged as a path leading to an encounter with the Lord Jesus.
