The three points atop Monty’s crown symbolize the Holy Trinity and recall the crown worn by Saint Mary, the Queen of Heaven, for whom our school is named.

Our School Mascot, Monty, has received a regal makeover just in time for this Summer’s Built on Faith Project renovations. “It will be so exciting to host home basketball and volleyball games in this new space,” remarked Mr. Hess. “We are fortunate to work with Quinn Evans–the same team of architects who helped us to complete our Elementary and Administrative Wing renovations,” he added.
More detailed information about this multipurpose gathering space will be available after both masses this weekend (March 12 & 13) in the Upper Commons. Parishioners will receive brochures and pledge envelopes outlining how they can support our BUILT ON FAITH campaign goal of $2.5 million dollars to fully fund this round of facility improvements. Once complete, renovations will result in the modernization of three key areas:
- Gathering Space: A multipurpose community space for both church and school use which will serve as Gymnasium, Cafeteria, Auditorium and Worship Space for celebrations requiring overflow seating like Christmas and Easter masses.
- Kitchen: Our kitchen will be updated from floor to ceiling to serve both our parish’s ministry needs and our school’s cafeteria. The new design includes adjustable preparation counters to allow for youth service in the preparation of meals for our community.
- Indoor/Outdoor Courtyard: The outdated courtyard and garden will be partially enclosed and air-conditioned to provide for expanded year-round usage by the school and parish.
