Archbishop Cordileone's letter to St. Hi[...]

Saint Hilary School is dedicated to academic excellence and faith-based learning. The school culture for the students and the families is one of community and values. Our belief is that educating for life success is an education based upon academic excellence and faith-based values.
Like most Catholic schools, the true cost to educate each child exceeds the revenues from tuition. Each year the school operating budget depends upon voluntary giving from the school families, typically between $1,500 and $2,000 per student. Every year the school starts with a need for additional revenues that only come from donations. At Saint Hilary School the Angel Fund was created as a way for our school families to practice the value of voluntary giving and by donating to the Angel Fund to close the gap between tuition revenues and operating budget needs.
As you plan your giving, please consider the wonderful impact you can have on our most precious resource: our children. We encourage you to visit the SHS website http://academie.sainthilaryschool.org/Pages/Home.aspx and our page on Angel Fund giving. Also, please consider asking for a campus tour to see our children, our class structure, and truly appreciate the beauty of what we accomplish at SHS. God bless you!
ARCHBISHOP SALVATORE JOSEPH CORDILEONE!
We were most honored this past weekend (Nov. 2 to 4) to have the Archbishop as our house guest in the rectory for three days, during which he met with the leadership of the parish and school, visited the Sunday School classes, presided at Mass, administered the Sacrament of Confirmation Sunday night, and then visited each of our school classrooms on Monday. His wonderful pastoral visitation, the very first in the entire Archdiocese of San Francisco, concluded with a gorgeous lunch in Tarantino Hall with the faculty and staff members of the school and rectory. Archbishop Cordileone enjoyed his time here so much, he said of one classroom he visited: "Bill, I could have stayed there all day!" May God bless him and the people of the Archdiocese whom he serves and shepherds. To learn more about our Archbishop and our Archdiocese, check the following links.
