At the heart of the DePaul Cristo Rey is its Catholic/Christian identity with a mission to serve students of all faiths.

Sisters of Charity Sponsorship

DePaul Cristo Rey is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. Founded by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, who established the first free parochial school in America in 1810, the Sisters of Charity have been innovators and courageous leaders in education for more than 200 years. The Sisters of Charity have sponsored numerous schools, hospitals, orphanages and social service agencies throughout their history. DePaul Cristo Rey High School is the community’s newest sponsored ministry.

The school is named for St. Vincent de Paul, who was known for his kindness and charity to all classes of people he encountered in Paris in the 1600s.

Campus Ministry

DPCR’s Campus Ministry Program offers both informal and organized opportunities for students to explore and grow their faith. Every school day begins with prayer, and Friday Morning Chapel is an assembly of all students and includes prayer, speakers and faith-sharing opportunities. Throughout the school year there are prayer services, liturgies and a retreat program in which all students participate. Many campus ministry programs are planned in conjunction with service opportunities to allow students to put their faith into action.
