The mission of St. Labre is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Catholic Tradition by providing quality education which celebrates our Catholic faith and embraces Native American cultures, primarily the Northern Cheyenne and Crow tribes, so that Native American individuals and communities of Southeastern Montana are empowered to attain self-sufficiency.

Believing our Indian children’s families and communities have a tremendous impact on their education, we strive to create a positive impact on the areas and communities we serve. From economic impact to continued education opportunities, St. Labre spreads its “miracle” of hope beyond our classrooms. Here is a snapshot of how we have worked to provide hope and a brighter, better future for our Indian children and their community.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

St. Labre was founded on the principle that education is very much a form of social justice. While no one individual can change history, together we can give Native American children a greater chance at a brighter, better future through education. Serving our community is a way St. Labre spreads its “miracle” of hope beyond our classrooms.

Community Service Projects

Hours fully completed by students in the Works of Mercy program, which include community service hours that teach the children how to engage and help with the rest of our community.
"The opportunity made me want to just stop for a second and stop worrying about teenage things. It helped me realize that my life is a gift from God and I should be thankful for that."

Community Employment

St. Labre currently employs 277 staff members at 3 campuses. 51% of our staff is Native American.
