During the holiday season people join together to give to those in need. Hearts are open and donations are generous. Food, coats, pajamas, toys; whatever and wherever the need exists.
But for the students of St. Joseph Academy service is not a ‘holiday project’. Our students understand the importance of giving back to their community. They generously give of their time all year, whether it is working at the parish festival or collecting groceries for the food pantry and school supplies for students affected by hurricanes.
This year, for the first time, our students are helping at St. John’s Soup Kitchen every month. Once again, St. Joseph Academy will honor our veterans on December 15th, laying wreaths at their headstones and saying thank you, as part of “National Wreath Across America”.
These and other service projects provide opportunities for students to experience firsthand the beauty of living out the Gospel message of service to others.
The faculty and staff of St. Joseph Academy are here to be of service to its children. To create a safe and healthy environment in which children can grow in faith and develop a positive sense of self is our mission.
As we prepare for the holidays remember to gather as a family, give thanks for your many blessings and help those less fortunate.
