Science

The purpose of the study of science in Catholic education is to discover the truth, beauty and goodness of the natural world.  God has written two books: nature and the Bible.  All that exists carries the sign of the Creator; natural law and faith are complementary.  We celebrate the great mystery of life and God's goodness.  The truth helps clarify the Catholic understanding of what it means to be human and how in our nature we are open to God.  Faith and reason are not opposed to one another; they exist in mutual support.  Reason challenges faith to explain itself (the how) and faith challenges reason to go beyond itself, to recognize the unexplainable (the why).  Thus, the presentations of the discipline must illustrate this interdependence.
