At St. Irenaeus Parish School, faith extends beyond the four walls of the classroom and it starts with staff and faculty.
During the school week, teachers speak of Jesus’ love and care for those in need. On the weekend, they take the concept of “practice what you preach” to a whole new level as they engage in multiple activities to help their community. Administrators, teachers and staff are committed to helping students become “faith-filled active Catholics.” Students are prepared to face the challenges they will encounter in high school and beyond.
Coach Rodolfo Flores is one of many examples of the commitment to service from the St. Irenaeus teaching community. This year, Coach Flores ran the Los Angeles Marathon for a special cause – to raise money for the Special Olympics Southern California, as well as St. Irenaeus Parish School. The fundraising effort will help enrich the lives of athletes with intellectual disabilities.
Coach Flores, who has been teaching physical education at St. Irenaeus since 2005, has gathered the support of family, friends, and the entire school community to help him achieve his mission of helping those in need.
