Go forth and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (Mathew 28:28). The Catholic Church exists to help you experience the Good News of Jesus Christ. I believe this fully with all my being as your Pastor. I want each person who is part of St. Joseph Catholic Church to experience this Good News!
What is this good news? God proves his love for us that while we are still sinners he sent his son to die for us. By dying and rising for us, Jesus merits for us a place at the table with his Father. We become God’s sons and daughters. As our Father he sends us His love which empowers us to live a life of love. This love never leaves us and he pledges that He will be with us until the end of the age. This is the Good News that I want all people who are part of St. Joseph to experience and live.
For this reason, here at St. Joseph, we focus on a very simple statement. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we evangelize as we worship, study, and serve. This statement governs why we do what we do. St. Joseph Catholic School is a key ministry for St. Joseph. We want your child to learn about all aspects of life. We want you to accompany them in this learning as they grow in their mind, body, and soul. We want our children at St. Joseph to be disciples who intentionally love one another. We want them to embrace the diversity of the world with enthusiasm and treat all according to the Golden Rule. We want them to become passionate about the disciplines of science, the arts, and mathematics. We want them to love life and then live life to the full. Finally, we want your child to be leaders in what is good, beautiful and true. This type of leadership takes prudent risks to help change the world.
In short, I believe St. Joseph Catholic School is the best form of youth ministry that we can provide where together, we can help your child become the best version of themselves so that they can live a life of leadership as a Catholic Christian. My hope is that all the children that pass through St. Joseph will live their life with heaven as their ultimate goal.
If you are with us already, you know the blessing of our Catholic School. If you are searching for a school - home for your child, you have come to the right place.
In Corde lesu,
