Holy Mass and Confession/ Schedule

Daily Mass

St. Joseph Academy begins its classes at 8:50 am in order to allow the staff and students the opportunity to attend daily Mass. 

"Hear Mass daily; it will prosper the whole day. All your duties will be performed the better for it, and your soul will be stronger to bear its daily cross. The Mass is the most holy act of religion; you can do nothing that can give greater glory to God or be more profitable for your soul than to hear Mass both frequently and devoutly. It is the favorite devotion of the saints". -- St. Peter Julian Eymard

Weekly School Mass

St. Joseph Academy provides a weekly Mass for the staff, students and parents.  Holy Mass is usually scheduled every Friday at 11:20 a.m.  Various priests come on a regular basis to celebrate Mass.

"Holy Communion is the shortest and safest way to Heaven". -- Pope St. Pius X

Once a month the Latin Mass is celebrated (see Latin Mass).

Confession

St. Joseph Academy offers monthly Confession, during school so that all students attend as a class, in the Octive of the First Fridays for students and staff.

"Confession heals, confession justifies, confession grants pardon of sin. All hope consists in confession. In confession there is a chance for mercy. Believe it firmly. Do not doubt, do not hesitate, never despair of the mercy of God. Hope and have confidence in confession". --St. Isidore of Seville
