“We need to ask ourselves: What is my life about?”
The Saint Albert Catholic Schools are grateful partners with the Catholic Foundation of Southwest Iowa. Our common mission provides a choice for families that instills the values and teachings of Jesus Christ in our students. Together our efforts support families and build faithful communities. Gifts to Saint Albert through the Catholic Foundation of Southwest Iowa are essential to the continued success and future financial security of our school system.

Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Granger entrusts its offerings to the parish to do good works and promote the Biblical teaching of our Catholic faith. We all want a return and growth of our invested monies but not at the expense of promoting corporations that would do harm. The Catholic Foundation of Southwest Iowa understands our desire to invest in companies that are ethically and morally grounded.

Catholic schools and strong religious education programs in our parishes form the foundation and shape the future of our Catholic community. The critical lessons our kids learn and practice in this world will enable them to find purpose, meaning and real joy in this world and eternal life in God’s kingdom.
