Welcome from the Steps for Students Grand Marshall


Can you believe that we are celebrating our 15th year of Steps for Students? It is amazing to see the growth and expansion of Steps for Students, and we have YOU to thank for this growth! It is because of people like you that have joined the Catholic school “race” that we are able to make events like this “cross the finish line” with better and better results each year!

THANK YOU for helping us make the 15th annual Steps for Students a HUGE success for our Catholic schools! Steps for Students is not only the largest community event hosted by Catholics in the city of Houston, it is also the BEST event for our students to see how the community supports them and their schools. The unity that is felt for this effort and the solidarity that is built at the actual event is completely and totally AMAZING!

Steps for Students is an event like no other as it is the largest event that publicly supports Catholic education in our state, and maybe even the nation! It is because we LOVE our Catholic schools and want to help transform our students into disciples of Jesus Christ that the enormity of this event has such an incredible impact on the community.

Keep the “finish line” in mind! Our goal is that every school participates with enthusiasm and gusto in Steps for Students! Don’t worry about the map…we’ll show you the way! This website will provide you with everything you need to gain a better understanding of how the event works and how to make the most of this event within your community. Getting our students, their families, parishioners, and friends to “join us on the track” is all that it takes, and the funds go directly back to the schools!


I look forward to seeing you at the finish line.


In Him we trust,
