“Turn toward God, fall in love,

and put yourself in His service.”

For Theodore Ryken, Brother Francis Xavier, this pious sentiment was a lived reality, an encounter with the Word made flesh. Ryken’s words are an echoing reminder of the heart of our school’s mission: to bring our students before the Word, the Incarnate and ineffable love of God. At St. Mary’s Ryken, we strive to form each student to recognize God’s love and respond to that love generously.

As a school, our culture of academic excellence, selfless service, and zealous worship of God aims to give to God what we ultimately are most in need of: “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10: 2)
