From the Principal…
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic School website. It is such a joy to be in a community of family, friends, education and faith. Whether you are a current or prospective new school family, visitor, former alumni, or parishioner, we hope you find the information on our website useful.
Here at OLQM our Catholic school experience is more than an education. It is a transformative process in which a young person encounters the person of Jesus Christ on a daily basis. Our young people are encouraged, lead, nurtured, formed, and developed into the person God is calling them to be. At OLQM children are taught faith, not just the basics of Christianity, but how to have a relationship with God. Children are taught academics, which at OLQM Catholic School is held to very high standards, where each child can reach his or her full potential. Children are taught service, the giving of one’s time and effort to help others; taught both as an expression of faith and good citizenship. We thank you for joining us in preparing your child in the important task of leading them toward a successful future and a love for God and others.
As principal of OLQM, my commitment to your family is to do my very best to foster your child’s innate desire to explore, to discover and to understand themselves and the world in which they live. I will strive to do so within the context of our Catholic faith and the teachings of Jesus. I am committed to ensuring your experience here at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic School is a positive one. I extend an open invitation for you to call and come visit our school at any time.
With great gratitude to God,
Jacqueline R. Mojeske
