Fall Retreat at Rodeo Beach
The Santiago Community is a direct response to students’ desire to live with others who share their values and interests in Faith, Service and Community. Living in Ageno West, junior and senior students support each other in their individual and community commitments made on the fall retreat. Additionally, these Saint Mary’s students work with De Marillac Academy in San Francisco to support the mission of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Students selected the name Santiago in honor of Brother James (Santiago) Miller, FSC, a Christian Brother who worked with the indigenous people of Guatemala. He died tragically in Central America where his work to educate the poor came in opposition to the military powers.
