Message from the Chaplain

Message from the Chaplain

Cardinal Newman High School is particularly blessed.

Aside from our impressive community of students, families and teachers here in Sonoma County, we also have a very unique patron in heaven. St. John Henry Newman (1801-1890) lived an uncommonly honest life, guided always by the truth that comes from God. Much of his life's work was devoted to the education of high school students and his writings remain for us a profound mine of insight that can be both challenging and rewarding to us as we traverse the same pathway that he trod "ex umbris et imaginibus in veritatem" (out of shadows and images into the truth).

Christian Service Program

Catholic Schools are called to reach out to the suffering, the poor, and the vulnerable through concrete acts of charity.

 

Intent & Mission

Like many schools, Cardinal Newman High School features a strong service program, but what sets our service program apart from others is our emphasis on the theological virtue of charity. 

Our commitment to this fundamental value means that our students not only engage in meaningful acts of service, but also internalize the importance of compassion, empathy, and kindness towards others. Join us at Cardinal Newman and discover what it truly means to serve with purpose and heart.
