Virtues

St. Joseph School teachers strive to educate their students both academically and spiritually, devoting part of each month's curriculum to character development through the study of virtues.  

During the month of October, we are studying the theological virtue of Faith.  Last month Pope Francis said that faith is not founded upon human wisdom, but on the power of God, as made manifest in the Gospel.  In addition to praying the Act of Faith, as a school community we have discussed what it means to believe in God even though we cannot see Him, and what it means to see Him in all things.  Later this month, we will have some guest speakers talk to us about how they live their vocation day by day in faith.

Next month, we will study the theological virtue of Hope.  We will be collecting food for the Holbrook Food Pantry as a Christian Service Project for the entire school.  We hope to bring hope to others by offering them donations of food to ease their burdens and concerns.
