Our aim is to cultivate in each young man a whole person in the context of the Gospels. Thus, with the life of Christ firmly in view as his model, the Fatima Boy should have a keen eye on preserving family life, caring for the marginalized, respect for all beliefs, and working for justice and peace. We, like other schools founded by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, refuse to accept that the sole purpose of education is job training. Rather, the young man at the College of Our Lady of Fatima should be developing his God-given talents and skills, his will and his resolve in pursuit of truth.
