Hunger Walk Grades Seven and Eight: Proud of Your Giving Spirit

On Sunday our many of our seventh and eighth grade students participated in the Hunger Walk following 12 Noon Mass celebrated by Father Jaromir.  Father’s homily was inspiring the students to understand the importance of giving of self in an effort to build relationships with others during our journey on earth.

60 Years Strong Mass

A Very Special School Mass to celebrate Saint Joseph Regional School’s 60th Anniversary, Bishop Sullivan, Father Romano, Father Anthony, Father Vignone, Father Hart, Father Wagenhofer, Father Nevitt, and of course, Father Jaromir concelebrated the Mass.

Bishop’s homily helped our students to understand the strong significance of the Cross in our lives as Catholics.

He praised all, Teachers, Staff Members, Parents, Students of our school today and those who came before us.Bishop Sullivan said that we are celebrating our 60th Year Strong because of those individuals.

Yes, in 1958, the Saint Joseph Church community and the Sisters of Saint Joseph from Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, created its first Catholic School in Somers Point.

The school opened for students not only to receive an outstanding education, but for the students to grow in their Catholic faith.

Today, 60 years later, when our world is changing so rapidly, Saint Joseph Regional School’s purpose is the same, to give you, our students, a strong education that encourages you to:

To develop your God given talents for a lifetime, learn the meaning of responsibility and the importance of serving others while developing a strong relationship with God.

We had gifts for Bishop Sullivan by kindergarten and grade one and two students:

1. Emma Parmalee presented him with Our Book Project titled: 60 Years and Counting written and illustrated by Saint Joseph students.
2. Parker Blair gave Bishop a 60 Years Strong T-Shirt
3. Emma Palmer presented Bishop with Johnson’s Popcorn while Maxwell House gave him salt water taffy from Ocean City.
4. Vinny Bisiglia presented Bishop Sullivan with Jagielky’s homemade chocolates from Margate.
5. And finally, Avari Thoensen presented him with a Saint Joseph School 60 Year Strong Ribbon, Magnet, and Book Mark.

Thank you, Bishop Sullivan, and our Priests for this very special visit, it meant a great deal to each of us!!!

Many photos to follow over the coming days here is just one.
