Our Theme

Enter the world of Spanish Mysticism by joining us for a very special evening devoted to our school's book study of The Interior Castle, by Saint Teresa of Avila.

Come and meet us for an evening of celebration as we are introduced to the seven rooms of our own interior castles and learn how to enter the seventh and greatest chamber where Jesus is dwelling within us!

Flamenco dancing, tapas and Spanish music will make for an unforgettable night.

Sponsorship Opportunities

These sponsorships directly support Holy Child Catholic School's mission of Raising Saints and Forming Scholars while keeping tuition low for our school families. It cost $8,000 to educate a child and we only charge $5,150 for tuition.
