    Virtue of the Month

    September: Faith

    Romans 1:17 For in it is revealed the righteousness of God from faith to faith; as it is written, “The one who is righteous by faith will live.”

    CCC 1814 Faith is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us, and that Holy Church proposes for our belief, because he is truth itself. By faith "man freely commits his entire self to God." For this reason the believer seeks to know and do God's will. "The righteous shall live by faith." Living faith "work[s] through charity."

    FAMILY SERVICE/PRAYER OPPORTUNITY: Work together at home to create a prayer table or prayer corner and take a picture of your family using this prayer space. Post the photo to our St. Joseph School Facebook page.

    Protecting God’s Children for Adults™/Virtus Training

    Protecting God's Children for Adults is training conducted by certified facilitators on the prevention of child sexual abuse. The training makes participants aware of the signs of child sexual abuse, the methods and means by which offenders commit abuse, and five easy steps one can use to prevent child sexual abuse. Two videos are the centerpiece of the training: A Time to Protect God's Children™ and A Plan to Protect God's Children™. The facilitators incorporate Archdiocesan policies and procedures into the training defining child sexual abuse, addressing the reporting of child sexual abuse, the screening and selection of employees and volunteers. The Virtus training program implements safety mechanisms that send a message to all abusers and potential abusers: Child Abuse is not tolerated. Children are vigilantly protected. Victims are listened to, heard, and shielded from further abuse. And offenders are identified and punished.” – Virtus Website

    All employees and all volunteers who work with children and young people must fulfill this compliance requirement. [Book II The People of God, Part I, Policy 603.3]

    St. Joseph School

    St. Joseph School, as part of St. Joseph Parish in the Archdiocese of Chicago, will spread the Good News to the families of the Round Lake area.
