Profile of a St. Anne School Leader
The Catholic Church recognizes seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. These seven gifts are present in their fullness in Jesus Christ, but they are also found in all Christians who are in a state of grace. The St. Anne faculty and staff integrate religious truth and values not only in the curriculum, but within all things that make up St. Anne School. In the Book of Isaiah 11: 2-3, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit are recognized as gifts that the Messiah would have possessed: wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. The nobility of the task to which teachers are called demands the imitation of Christ, the only Teacher, as they reveal the Christian message not only by word but also by every gesture of their behavior.
