Founder’s Day is usually celebrated on the third Monday in January every year. On this day, we remember our Patron Saint and first martyr, Saint Stephen and we pay tribute to the founders of our school.

Saint Stephen is a recognized saint in many Christian theologies and is considered to be the first Christian martyr. According to the fifth book of the Bible’s New Testament, the Acts of the Apostles, Stephen was denounced for blasphemy after a dispute with members of a Jewish synagogue circa the year 36. According to Chapters 6 and 7 of the Book of Acts, he was condemned and stoned to death—the scene which is re-enacted every year at our Founder’s Day Mass.
