Mission and Vision


The Office of Advancement exists to augment the necessary funding to provide an exceptional educational program for the students attending Mater Dei Catholic High School in Breese, Illinois, and to cultivate a source of community support that will ensure and sustain a vibrant future for the school.



Mater Dei Catholic High School will continue to be a vibrant and viable educational choice for all families in the North Central Vicariate and surrounding communities who desire a faith based quality educational experience.

Our ability to secure this future will depend, in part, on our skill in successfully nurturing and strengthening relationships between the school and its varied constituencies so as to ensure that Catholic secondary education be available, accessible, accountable, and affordable for all who wish to attend.
