"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.
PARTICIPATION IN THE LITURGY
Students receive guidance from the priest and pastoral administrator while participating in the celebration of the Sacraments, the Mass and other liturgical services. Lenten and Advent ceremonies, the observance of Holy Days, and preparation of Confirmation and First Eucharist are all an integral part of the curriculum.
All Students attend liturgies at least one day per week
