The Dominican Difference

Saint Henry School has been blessed by the educational leadership and presence of the Dominican Sisters. The sisters have served as principals and teachers since our foundation in 1957. Sister Maria Christi, our principal, and three sisters currently serve our community.

From the website for the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation:

“While every school in which our sisters teach has its own distinctive history and culture, the presence of Dominican religious brings a consistent and unique element to each of our schools. Four particular features mark education in the Dominican tradition:

  1. Spreading the Gospel Message: Preaching
  2. Love of Truth: Study
  3. Formation in Faith: Prayer
  4. United in Mission: Community
