The instruction and formation in Gospel Values is central to our mission at Saint Joseph Catholic School. Our children have religious instruction each day in school, but the spiritual education of our children extends beyond this classroom instruction.
Each Day Begins with Prayer
Students learn a variety of prayer techniques from traditional prayers to meditation to extemporaneous prayer. All students attend weekly Mass in our church and many prayer services throughout the school year.
First Holy Communion
In the second grade the children of our parish receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Children are prepared for these sacraments over the course of two years (the first and second grade year).
Catholic School Retreats
Children participate in retreats—days of prayer and spiritual activities—throughout the school year. In the sixth grade, students participate in quarterly retreats. The entire school takes part in an annual Holy Week retreat held on the Wednesday before Holy Thursday each year.
