A Message from Fr. Ernie

Fr. Ernie  
Since 1965, St. Paul the Apostle School has been a cornerstone of the community, serving families who live in Grand Rapids, Cascade, Forest Hills, Kentwood and beyond. Much has changed in the 51 years since our doors first opened, yet our values remain constant. We provide Christ-centered learning and academic excellence in a nurturing environment.

Christian faith and Gospel values permeate all that we do. We continually challenge our children to know their faith, live their faith, and share their faith. We teach them to understand the sacredness of human life. They are taught to see themselves and each other as children of God.

The school enjoys the very strong support of the parish community. In various ways we seek to integrate the weekday school experience with the parish weekend liturgical life. Our investment in Catholic education is also an investment in the future of the Church.

The Gospel says that Jesus welcomed little children and blessed them. In our school children encounter the welcoming presence of the Lord, and they grow in the blessings of faith.
