Principal’s Letter – June 2

June 2, 2020 Dear St. Joseph School Families,                 As we approach Graduation and the end of our 2019-2020 school year in this St. Joseph School Family, I am reminded of the many blessings that God has given us in this time of physical distancing.  While physically distant, God has given us the means and the people to continue to educate our children in the best way we knew how.

May 27, 2020 – Principal’s Letter

May 27, 2020 Dear St. Joseph School Families,             Looking forward to this Sunday, we anticipate the celebration of Pentecost, the time when the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles. The first reading begins by saying, the apostles were “all in one place together.” In this time of physical distancing we certainly wish that were the case for us.  But, the readings of Pentecost go on to say, that the Spirit came upon them and allowed them to proclaim God’s word in many languages. We are rem...

Principal’s Letter, May 6th

May 6, 2020 Dear St. Joseph School Families,             This past Sunday was “Good Shepherd Sunday”.  We are reminded that sheep follow their own shepherd because they recognize the voice of the shepherd.  May we continue to follow the voice of our Shepherd, Jesus Christ, as we move through this time.  Responding to the Shepherd’s voice of love and compassion, hope and joy, will bring us to a more peace-filled place.
