Religious Dimension

​St. Joseph’s Catholic High School has a Catholic learning environment, based on Gospel values, which promotes the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, emotional, and physical growth of each student, in partnership with the parents, the Church, and the global community.  
By way of registration, each student at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School seals a covenant, thereby promising to participate reverently in all aspects of the school's religious dimension - daily prayer, community masses, homeroom mass, paraliturgies, religion classes and retreats.
Indeed, to celebrate the Eucharist as a community of faith must be embraced by each member of our Catholic school community as a treasured opportunity. Attendance for all is mandatory. All students are encouraged to participate to the fullest in all our liturgical celebrations by assisting with organization, song, prayer, or simply respectful reverence. All students must take a course in Religious Education while in attendance at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School.
