St. Joseph The Worker School

  • St Joseph The Worker School is a Catholic community that invites and encourages all its members to live the faith filled journey with Jesus Christ.
  • We, the members of the Holy Family Catholic Schools believe that families are domestic churches and the foundation of a Catholic way of life; children are gifts from God and that they have the right to know the nurturing love of their Creator; parents are the first and primary educators of their children; and each parish and its programs of Catholic education are an extension of the family and assist families in their mission.
