O God, in your ineffable providence you were pleased to choose Blessed Joseph to be the spouse of your most holy Mother; grant, we beg you, that we may be worthy to have him for our intercessor in heaven whom on earth we venerate as our Protector: You who live and reign forever and ever. Saint Joseph, pray for us.

We are overwhelmed with such gratitude for everyone who made the school auction such am amazing night! None of this would even be possible, if it were not for the hard work of so many people. Our goal this year was to raise funds to create an updated playground and outdoor learning space for our students. Check out our video we shared last night: Video link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hhfsONnVGj5B4TD7U7QiP-oIgbvgiYfn/view?usp=drivesdk There is still time to be a part of helping us build an amazing outdoor playground and learning space for our students. Every dollar counts towards making this dream a reality for our students and staff!
