Happy St. Joseph's Day!

Today is the Feast of St. Joseph, our patron saint who took the Lord Jesus as his son! We celebrate this day with the fathers of our Prep students. God blessed our Prep fathers with sons who give the Prep faculty and staff a great deal of joy each class day. The sons, too, who are not so engaged and the sons who get into trouble! All are carrying gifts into a future, gifts that will mature in times of challenge and opportunity.

I give thanks for the Prep fathers who have met the responsibilities of fatherhood, some with both sons and daughters; I pray for those who are struggling to meet their challenge more fruitfully; I ask your prayers that we at the Prep can be enthusiastic partners with the fathers of our students.

St. Joseph, pray for us! Help us to know Your Son as You knew Him.
