Our History

St. Emily opened its doors in September 2006. It was named in honour of St. Emily de Rodate who was born near Rodez, France and who became a nun at Maison St. Cyr when she was eighteen. Emily means "to excel". In 1815, she decided that her vocation was in teaching poor children. With the aid of three young assistants, she began her work in her room at St. Cyr. This was the start of a teaching institute called the Congregation of the Holy Family of Villefanche. It grew rapidly, establishing its own motherhouse and branches. In time, St. Emily extended the Congregation's activities to caring for unfortunate women, orphans and the aged. She saw 38 institutions established before she died in 1852. She was canonized in 1950 and her Feast Day is September 19.

We are in our second year of our Spiritual Theme "Sent to be the Good News". This spiritual theme enables our staff, students and community to dig deep in the Gospel to make real and meaningful connections with our everyday lives. It was inspired by the following passage:

The spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.Gospel of Luke, 4:14-20

It calls us to bring the Good News to all learners and their families, and to rediscover and deepen our commitment to the gift of faith in our lives. We look forward to showcasing the ways in which our staff and students connect with this spiritual theme.
