Dear Friends of St. Joseph School,
As Pastor and Chief Administrative Officer of St. Joseph School, I am immensely proud
of our school. Young boys and girls are receiving an education that
fundamentally addresses the whole person, not just their destiny in this
life for which we prepare them well; but, their destiny to be with God
forever in Heaven. There is a strong emphasis on the inalienable dignity
on the human person, above all on his or her spiritual dimension. If
Catholic educators, parents, and others who dedicate themselves to this
apostolate fail to keep in mind a high supernatural vision, all their
talk about Catholic School will be no more than "a gong booming or a
cymbal clashing." (1Cor.13:1)
Our Parish would not be the same if we did not have our wonderful
school. It gives purpose to our existence. We are fully dedicated to the
total Catholic education of each child in the parish. Through the great
generosity of so many stewards, we are offering education of the highest
quality at an affordable price.
During this Year of Faith, our school is essential to the Parish’s
mission and call to a New Evangelization. The future of our church,
community, and world is largely dependent upon the partnership of
parents and teachers in our Catholic schools. May God bless you always.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. Liam M. Barr, V.F.
Pastor and Chief Administrative Officer
