Why a Catholic Education Matters
I feel a Catholic education is important because it develops the whole person, both academically and spiritually. The reason I choose to work at St. Joseph’s is because it is a family, friendly environment. Both the families and the faculty are very supportive and wonderful to work with.

The students have been learning a lot in Religion class. The 6th graders learned the story of Abraham and his covenant with God and how through our baptism, we have also entered into a covenant with God. The students have also learned about Jacob’s life and how God guided Jacob just like he guides us. They learned about Joseph, the son of Jacob, and because of Divine Providence, God took care of him and turned a bad situation into something good just like he takes care of us. They also learned how we can express our faith through prayer, sacrifice, and service. During Advent, the students learned about Jesus’ ancestors by creating ornaments for a Jesse Tree, and they learned about the birth of Jesus by watching the Nativity Story.
The students in 7th grade also learned a lot in religion class. They learned about Jesus’ parables and what they can teach us. They also learned about the miracles of Jesus and how we can we can accomplish anything if we have faith. The students also learned about the birth of Jesus by watching the Nativity Story and illustrating the scenes from Matthew 1:18-25, Matthew 2:1-12, and Luke 2:1-20. They will be learning about the sacraments of healing: Penance and Anointing of the sick. They will also learn about the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes.
The 8th grade students also learned a lot in religion class. The students learned about the Four Marks of the Church: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. They made a poster to show their understanding of these Four Marks of the Church. They also learned about “O” Antiphons and about John the Baptist who prepared the way for Jesus. They also learned about the first years of the Church and the struggles that the apostles faced. They will continue learning about the growth of the Church starting with Paul’s conversion and ending with his contributions.
