The Association of Christian Faithful (ACF) was created to preserve Visitation’s Catholic and Salesian spirit
The ACF ensures that the Sisters’ spirit of Living Jesus, received from our founders, St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal, remains the foundation of Visitation Academy and our Visitation community. It is important to remember that every Catholic school is required to be sponsored by a Church recognized body – a diocese, a religious order or a public ACF.
With the Sisters, the ACF is approved to serve as the religious sponsor of the school. As sponsors, we guarantee that Viz remains both Catholic and a place where our life of Salesian gentleness continues to blend with academic excellence to make the school unique.
At its core, St. Louis Visitation ACF has the responsibility to secure the heart-to-heart connection that mirrors Mary’s greeting to Elizabeth and is the essence of Visitation.
