Dear Alumni, Families and Supporters,
The most joyful season in our liturgical calendar is upon us, as we look forward with
hope and faith to the celebration of the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Indeed, the true
meaning of Easter is revealed in light of the Paschal Mystery of the death and resurrection of
Christ. It is the death of our Lord Jesus Christ that has redeemed for us eternal life and
salvation, and Christ’s resurrection is the basis of Christian hope and salvation.
During Lent, we were called to reflect on who we are and who we would like to become,
to foster a closer relationship with God, and to focus on the needs of those who are less
fortunate. Many of our students, staff and parishes have given up things we normally enjoy. As
a school community, we have participated in retreats, a senior mission trip, daily prayer, a thirty
day prayer project, heavenly hats, and have devoted more time to individual prayer and
contemplation. I am truly humbled and proud by the outpouring of caring and compassion we
witness in our St. Joseph Catholic Academy community on a daily basis.
Your commitment to Catholic Education is what sets us apart from all others. In this
sacrifice, please consider donating to our Annual Fund. On behalf of the students, faculty, staff
and myself, I wish to thank you once again for your dedication and service to Catholic Education
and to our students at St. Joseph Catholic Academy.
In closing, I would like to wish all of you God’s blessing during this Easter season, and
may His love fill your hearts and the hearts of your family and homes.
St. Joseph Catholic Academy
