Spread Kindness ~ Stop Bullying

Longtime Cleveland broadcaster Denise Dufala is on a mission
to help stop bullying with the "Be Kind, Stick Together" program.

Denise visited Metro Catholic this summer, and interviewed
Metro Catholic alum, Emerald Hood.

When we say CONNECT we mean ~
take the time to get to know others.
This means listening to them,
reaching out to them in word or deed,
learning about their needs and concerns,
understanding the culture/faith/family
from which they come.

When we say RESPECT we mean ~
recognize the Christ that is within others. 
This means we speak and act
in ways that celebrate and honor the
inherent dignity of the person or group.

When we say PROTECT we mean ~
watch out for others so that
they are safe in all ways. 
This means we watch out for bullying
and speak up,
we build on the connections we have made
to not make judgements
about entire groups,
and we act as the hands of God
to shelter those who are in need.

This year we open
our doors

30th Anniversary

and educational partner for all families,
and we know that our diversity is a strength to be appreciated!

Congratulations Mrs. Andrews

We congratulate Mrs. Andrews, the recipient of the

This award recognizes educators who give witness

Do not go where the path may lead.
