5th Week of Lent Prayer

This Sunday we remember the joyous event of Jesus entering Jerusalem known as Palm Sunday.  Today's prayer experience was recorded and reflects on the last 5 Stations, Holy Week, and Jesus' message of forgiveness.  Wishing all of you a very blessed weekend and Easter season in the weeks ahead!

3rd Week of Lent Prayer

 Hello, Vikings!

It has been wonderful to meet and pray with students during the last two weeks of Lent via our weekly Zoom meetings.  This week, Mrs. Alamo-Ng has a meeting with the teachers so I recorded our prayer and reflection to share with you.  I invite you to set aside 10 minutes, sit in a quiet place, and spend time talking to Jesus.  He loves to listen to you!

It has been a wonderful blessing to see many of you on campus.  For those that are learning from home, WE MISS YOU and are THANKFUL for the technology that allows us to still learn, PRAY, and gather as a school community.

Have a blessed weekend!

Season of Lent

 Today is Ash Wednesday and I want you to know that you continue to be in my daily prayers.  We have experienced a challenging year and I hope that our spirit and faith will be renewed during this time of waiting and preparation for Easter.  During Lent, we work to focus our minds and hearts on prayer, almsgiving, and fasting as we strive to deepen our relationship with Jesus.  Here is a special invitation to join Mrs. Alamo-Ng on Fridays at 1pm for a time of prayer and reflection via Zoom Meetings.  In the video below you will hear a beautiful excerpt from Make Room which I will continue to share sections of in the weeks ahead.

Blessings to you and your family!

Catholic Schools Week Wrap Up!

 We had a wonderful week expressing our gratitude for all the individuals who make the students' experience at St. Joseph School safe, fun, and faith-filled!  Our students shared beautiful words each morning that described a sense of family and community despite the reality that we have not been in a physical school building for almost a year.  There is so much to be grateful for and we hope to be together on campus soon.  Our hope and faith continue to carry us through each day with a deep commitment to giving of our best selves to our work, learning, and fellow SJU Vikings!

SJU Vikings Celebrate Catholic Schools Week

 This week we celebrate the blessing of our Catholic school community.  We take this opportunity to thank the countless community service workers, volunteers, families, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of our school for their ongoing support.  We created a virtual tour video to show you some of the things we love about St. Joseph School.  Click and see what students, teachers, and parents are saying!

We have also enjoyed Mask Monday and Class Color Spirit Days!  SJU Vikings are having fun while continuing to learn and work hard during Catholic Online Synchronous Learning.  Check out our Facebook Page "St. Joseph Upland" to see more photos of our students celebrating Catholic Schools Week.

St. Joseph School Cozy Christmas Sing-a-long

Tonight was a beautiful witness of faith, collaboration, and pure fun!  I am so proud of everyone that participated, the families that were patient with the change of Zoom links to accommodate more people, and a HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs. Fessler for stepping in as the host right before the show.  The performers brought so much joy to us during these very difficult times.  Thank you for the prayers as well.

You are always in my HEART Vikings!
