Each day brings exciting new opportunities to learn and discover anew at Saint Christina’s School. For the past decades and beyond, Sister Maria, a member of our community, has personally welcomed and bid farewell to children at the school door at the beginning and end of each day. This warmth and regard for children in our care permeates all facets of school life.
