Happy feast day to all in our school community.

FEAST OF ST. JOSEPH THE WORKER

St. Joseph was integral in laying the early foundation stones for Jesus’ life. He installed in Jesus a love for caring for those in need, a desire to put others before himself, to work hard and be devoted and compassionate in all his actions.
On this feast of St. Joseph the Worker, we pray that workers everywhere are treated with dignity and respect.

ST. JOSEPH, to us too, show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen.
