3-Minute Theology Series

This week during Catholic Schools Week, and in celebration of the anniversary of Fr. De Smet's birthday, we’ve been remembering our school’s namesake. Who was Fr. De Smet, S.J.? Why is he important? What did he contribute to the Jesuits, to Catholicism in St. Louis, and to American history?

Watch the video to learn interesting facts about this brave Flemish young man who traveled to the unknown western frontier to evangelize the Native Americans.

"Today our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and his Christ—for the God-man who lived and died for all the world; men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men and women completely convinced that the love of God which does not issue in justice for men and women is a farce."
Fr. pedro arrupe, s.J.
