We Are Now Community of Saints Regional Catholic School!

How Can I Give?
Please note that in the past we have raised the money through opportunities such as a $50,000 matching grant for tuition assistance from the Schulze Family Foundation. Similar fundraising drives will occur in the future. Watch for announcements at the COS website and in The Good News newsletter. Your gift, large or small, is welcome at any time. If you are interested in supporting Community of Saints, donations can be mailed to the school or feel free to contact us at 651-457-2510. This is a great opportunity to double the impact of your donation!

Our Diverse School Builds Future Leaders
COS has brought together the many traditions, values and cultures of the four parishes that are its sponsors. The result is a rich mix that truly reflects the diversity of the community ethnically and economically, as well as presenting different traditions within the Catholic faith. By engaging students in a multi-faceted and multi-cultural school environment, they learn to appreciate and value diversity and are better prepared to assume a leadership role in addressing the challenges of a diverse world community.
Community of Saints has hosted Reunion Sundays in recognition of the school alums of our sponsoring parishes.
An annual Community of Saints benefit usually occurs in May in the St. Matthew Social Hall from 6-10pm. We would love for you to join us at this fun event! Watch for an announcement.
Our 8th graders annually host a Taco Feed to raise money for their cultural experience field trip. The taco feed usually takes place on a Sunday in March from 2-7pm in the St. Matthew Social Hall. Keep your eyes open for the next Taco Feed!
