Lourdes Catholic Academy

Lourdes and the Santa Fe Ranch have partnered together to fulfill LCA’s desire to have a stronger emphasis on out of doors education and hands on environmental stewardship.

• Lourdes students have participated in Ranch activities and built a worm farm for us on the Ranch in April of 2009.
• Lourdes students have built a vegetable garden and a meditation garden at their school with SF Ranch assistance. Each grade has a distinct plot in the garden where the students carry out growing activities.
• In 2012, LCA received one of fifteen national awards, the St Francis of Assisi Caring for the Creation Award, from the National Association of Catholic women for their work in this area
• LCA students have worked on the SF Ranch wetlands, Las Lagunas de Anza, helping to build a shrine to the Virgen de Guadalupe and participating in celebration masses and other community events at Las Lagunas.
