"It is not only important to teach children, but to give them the desire to learn"
At St Joseph Consolidated School, an important part of a student's education comes in the form of spiritual development.
A portion of every students daily curriculum is dedicated to formal study of the Catholic Faith and Religious Instruction. Lenten and Advent ceremonies, the observance of Holy Days, and preparation of Confirmation and First Eucharist are all an integral part of the curriculum.
PARTICIPATION IN THE LITURGY
All Students attend weekly All School Mass, celebrated each Thursday. Every grade has the opportunity to help plan and participate in the weekly school Mass. Each month is spotlighted on a particular class, including a special breakfast for their family members to attend.
