The Mission of the Catholic School System of the Diocese of Lincoln is to form students spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically, in partnership with parents, and in harmony with the specific gifts given by God to each student. In order to fulfill this mission, these schools are committed to integrating the best programs and means of education with Catholic faith and moral values.

Students in the Diocese of Lincoln will understand Sacred Scripture as the inspired Word of God and that it teaches “solidly, faithfully, and without error that truth which God wanted put into the sacred writings for the sake of our salvation” –  Vatican II Constitution  Dei Verbum # 11.  The Old Testament lays the foundation for the fullness of God’s Truth manifested in the person of Jesus Christ in the New Testament.  Sacred Scripture, along with Sacred Tradition, handed down to us from the Apostles, comprises Divine Revelation.
