Santa Margarita Catholic High School strives to bring the nurturing charism of Caritas Christi – the love of Christ – to our community of faith and learning. In the 17th century, Jesus revealed a vision of His Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the patroness of our school. It is the heart of Jesus that impels us to live Caritas Christi. By embodying Gospel values we can be the heart of Christ in the world today.

Core Principles

Caritas Christi Prayer

Loving God, 
You know us and care for us always, 
and your eternal love flows through us.
Through the Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
we experience that love for humanity.
Give us a share in His compassion
to see your image in all people.
Give us a share in His humility
to serve and not be served.
Give us a share in His justice
to seek righteousness and to show mercy.
Give us a share in His goodness
to reveal your heart to others.
And remind us each day that where Caritas Christi prevails, we will always find you by surrendering our heart to yours. 

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen. 
St. Margaret Mary, pray for us.
