Blessing of the Animals

In honor of Saint Francis of Assisi’s Feast Day, Father Hartmann will be blessing animals in front of the school on Howes Street at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 2. You are invited to bring your pets and receive a blessing.

Lunch with your favorite stuffed animal

On Wednesday, October 4, the actual Feast Day of Saint Francis of
Assisi, you are invited to bring your favorite stuffed animal to lunch. While you’re at it, we encourage you to bring a new or like-new stuffed animal to donate to students in need at Putnam Elementary. The Putnam drive runs now through October 7.

October, The Month of the Rosary

Throughout October, Catholics all over the world will be honoring Mary, Queen of the Rosary, by meditating on the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. This is a good way to learn about the important events in the lives of Jesus and Mary. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says:

‘Meditation engages thought, imagination, emotion, and desire. This mobilization of faculties is necessary in order to deepen our convictions of faith, prompt the conversion of our heart, and strengthen our will to follow Christ. Christian prayer tries above all to meditate on the mysteries of Christ, as in lectio divina or the Rosary. This form of prayerful reflection is of great value, but Christian prayer should go further to the knowledge of the love of the Lord Jesus, to union with him' (CCC 2708).

SoulCore coming to Saint Joseph Catholic School

SoulCore is a contemporary core workout that pairs exercise with the prayers of the rosary. A sensory experience that combines music, reflections and movement to nourish body, mind and soul and encourage deeper meditation on the mysteries and virtues of the rosary. The workout consists of core strengthening, stretching and isometric exercises. The SoulCore leader recites the first part of each prayer, and the second part of every prayer is said in silence. A typical workout is 55-60 minutes.

Join us in the Youth Room at 8:30 a.m. every Thursday, beginning October 6. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a mat, light weights and water bottle. Special thanks to Cecelia White, Family Life Coordinator, for this opportunity for prayer and reflection.

Carlos Hernandez, Director of Latino Enrollment and Engagement at the Office of Catholic Schools, visits students, staff

Carlos Hernandez has been hired by the Archdiocese of Denver to coordinate and lead efforts to recruit and retain Latino students in all of the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools. He was here earlier this week to discuss Archbishop Aquila’s vision of making Catholic schools accessible to all, and applauded the efforts we are making in reaching out to our neighbors at Holy Family Catholic Church and beyond. According to Mr. Hernandez, Saint Joseph Catholic School is on the right path to being a truly “catholic,” meaning universal, school.

Q&A: What is a Complete Education?

by Dr. Chuck Hubbeling, Principal

Over the course of the year, we will be discussing what a complete education is. FYI: It is not purely focused on academics and academic success. Although important, true knowledge only comes when one is aware of and learns how to harness the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. The seven gifts are: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and wonder and awe.
