Partnering with the Principal
Our focus this year continues to be our faith through the Saints and the theme of service. This month the virtues program has a focus on mercy. St. John Vianney, St. Faustina, and St. Teresa of Calcutta are all examples of this virtue as they cared for those who suffer.
During Lent, we can lessen the suffering of others by donating our time, talent and treasures to many organizations. This Lenten season, St. Joe's is focusing on the Soles 4 Souls organization by helping those who suffer from poverty and want a better life, but lack opportunity. The organization gives your unwanted shoes to those who need them in the United States and around the world. We are also protecting the environment by putting the shoes to good use and keeping them out of a landfill. Please bring shoes to the morning drop off line or bring them to church and put them in the barrel. Thank you for helping us with this special project.
