Welcome from the President
Dear Friends of DePaul Cristo Rey,
Named after St. Vincent de Paul, our school is a member of the national Cristo Rey Network of high schools and is guided by the patronage of Cristo Rey/Christ the King. Jesus compared the Kingdom of God to the mustard seed – the tiniest of all seeds which grows into a large tree sheltering birds of every color. What a wonderful image for us at DePaul Cristo Rey!
Mustard seed indeed! Since our opening in 2011, our tiny seed has sprouted with life beyond our wildest imagination. The people who comprise DPCR are the birds of many colors – each unique, each gifted, each with a heritage and story, each part of forming the community that is our school. Each year since our opening our tree has added branches with new students, families, teachers, staff, Corporate Partners, and supporters - and we continue to grow.
I welcome you to join us in our growth as we build the Reign of God at DePaul Cristo Rey!
Sister Jeanne Bessette, OSF, Ed.D.
