What are Faith Families?

The mission of Faith Families is for students to develop a closer relationship to God and strengthen our Catholic community spirit at St. Albert the Great School. Faith Families are made up of students from various grades with an 8th grader acting as a family leader. Each family group is guided by the leader in a discussion about our faith and then complete an activity related to the topic.

What are STAG Value Cards?

They are given to students who show they are following in Jesus’ footsteps. Teachers or other staff members may give out a STAG Value Card because a student is living by Catholic values. These values include but are not limited to:

Understanding, Kindness, Faithfulness, Generosity, Grace, Friendship, Loyalty, Humility, Obedience, Consideration, Compassion, Respect, Service, Peace, Forgiveness, Leadership, Patience, Honesty

Each student receiving a STAG Value Card is recognized at the end of each month at our all school Mass.
