The faith formation of students sets Saint Joseph Parish School apart from other area school options. We exist as a school because of our commitment to religious education. Our primary purpose is to promote the development of a responsible Christian way of life. The Diocesan Course of Study serves as the guideline for the religion curriculum. Our school day begins and ends with prayer. Students attend Mass once a week as members of the all-school community or as primary, intermediate, or middle school section. Faith formation takes place as an integrated part of our school day as well as a formal instructional period of 30-45 minutes. Students are encouraged to practice their faith by receiving the sacraments, attending school and Sunday liturgy, and participating in service activities.
