About Us

Holy Ghost Catholic School was named for the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Ghost / Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is symbolic of peace and security. The members of our community ask in prayer, schoolwork, or in leisure that the Holy Spirit guide us and be the center of our school life. Our school has always been overseen by the Dominican Order. The founder of the order was St. Dominic Guzman who was born in Calruega, Spain, in 1170. The purpose of creating this order was to preach the good news of Jesus and the salvation of souls. The Dominican Order was approved by the Church in 1217, when Pope Honorius III gave Dominic the title of "Order of Preachers." There are currently about 800,000 members of the Dominican family worldwide. This includes sisters, nuns, priests, brothers, laity, and associates. Dominicans are found on every continent. The four pillars of the Dominican life are community, prayer, study, and service.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Our religious teachings at Holy Ghost School help us to learn about the gifts of the Holy Ghost. There are two kinds of gifts. The first gifts specially intended for the sanctification of the person who receives them. These gifts include wisdom, understanding, council, fortitude, knowledge, piety (godliness), and fear of the Lord. 
The second gift is charismata in which extraordinary favors are granted for the help of another. These gifts are: gift of speaking with wisdom, knowledge and faith; grace of healing; gift of miracles; gift of tongues; gift of interpreting speeches; gift of government; and the gift of help.
