Nourished by the Eucharist, our mission is to continue to reach out to the needy, to embrace our school children and their families, to serve seniors, and to love one another in imitation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Administered by the Daughters of Charity, who view education as a freeing process, the Cathedral School provides an atmosphere that speaks the Gospel Message and responds to the needs of society.
200 Years of Catholic Presents in Wilmington, Delaware**
"Most histories tell us that the first Masses in Wilmington were celebrated in the 1790/s when French refugees arrived from Haiti. But Catholicism had made its appearance a decade earlier than that during the Revolutionary War.
French Soldiers in 1782 were billeted in the Wilmington Academy, roughly where the Grand Opera House now is. Catholic army chaplains said Mass there.
The hard work of justice for everyone is far from over. We must challenge ourselves and our community to open our eyes to the needs around us and take action, whatever those needs are. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr focused on justice, social justice, civil rights, "the least of these", poverty, human trafficking, bullying, clean water, and domestic violence.
“Mission is never the fruit of a perfectly planned program or a well-organized manual. Mission is always the fruit of a life which knows what it is to be found and healed, encountered and forgiven. Mission is born of a constant experience of God’s merciful anointing.” Pope Francis
