Lifelong learners are motivated to learn and develop because they want to enrich their own and others' lives. To study, work, and play together in the context of Christian faith strengthens each person and the community, enhances the world around us, and provides us with increasingly better opportunities to improve our quality of life and to serve our Lord.
