May 26, 2021 Dear St. Joseph School Families,   Pentecost calls us to continue the work of Jesus Christ.

Principal’s Letter – 05/19/21

May 19, 2021 Dear St. Joseph School Families,   This weekend we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost.  Pentecost commemorates the day that the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles, allowing them to speak in a way that all the people assembled were able to understand.  It is said in Scripture that thousands were Baptized with the Spirit on that day.  We believe that this is the day all were called to do the work that Jesus began—the work of compassion, mercy, and peace. Please keep in mind tha...

Principal’s Letter – 05/12/21

May 12, 2021 Dear St. Joseph School Families,   As we know, the month of May is dedicated to our Blessed Mother Mary.  Most often we think of Mary as the Mother of Jesus.  We often forget that Mary is also our mother.  Under the title of the Immaculate Conception, Mary is the patron saint of our nation.  As we remember Mary our Blessed Mother, we think about her response of “Yes” to being the Mother of Jesus, but we don’t often remember the hardships that this “Yes” entailed.  May we, like...

Principal’s Letter – 04/28/21

April 28, 2021 Dear St. Joseph School Families, While we are still in the midst of the Easter season, our friends in the Greek Orthodox Church are anticipating the celebration of Easter this coming Sunday. May they celebrate the happiest of Easters as they too bring back the Alleluias. This past Sunday we celebrated the feast of the Good Shepherd, one of the titles for Jesus. If we delve into just what a good shepherd is, we learn that this is the shepherd whose sheep know the voice o...

April 21, 2021 Dear St. Joseph School Families,  We continue to celebrate the Easter season, where the Alleluias have returned to our prayers, and we observe the New Life of the Resurrection and the spring season.  Once again I wish to thank everyone for their prayers and condolences at the loss of my brother Michael.  Anyone who has had a sibling understands what a tremendous loss it can be and I am grateful for the support everyone has shown. We congratulate our students who receiv...
