Faith Formation

As a Catholic School of the Nelson Diocese, all our religion classes are conducted within Diocesan-approved programs and follow the Vancouver Diocese Faith Formation Curriculum and Instruction. Your child will prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in Grade 2 and Confirmation in Grade 7.

The purpose of St. Joseph School is to assist with the faith formation of our students. This can only be done with the co-operation of home, school and parish. We strongly encourage parents to be active in their parish.

We are fortunate to have our parish priests contributing their time, energy and religious guidance in striving to provide the best possible Catholic education for our students. Staff members attend yearly spiritual development retreats and conferences.

Each month we celebrate the Eucharist as a school community. Each grade level takes a turn preparing the celebration. Parents and community members are invited and most welcome to join us on these special occasions.
