Holy Name of Jesus Church-Holy Week Schedule

Dear members of the St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Academy Family,

Please see the schedule of Holy Week Masses and Liturgies in Holy Name of Jesus Church. They are open for in-person attendance with all safety protocols in place.

As the schedule indicates, they will also be livestreaming many Liturgies.

We hope as many of you as possible will participate (in person or virtually either at Holy Name or in some other Church that might be more convenient for you) in these grace-filled Masses and Liturgies of the Holiest Week of the Year.

God Bless you and Happy Easter to all.

 

 

 

Read-a-thon to begin soon!

Saint Joseph The Worker Catholic Academy has decided to hold a

Read-a-thon this year!

Read-a-thons actually get your reader excited about reading and it gives friends and family the opportunity to encourage your child to read even more.

Our Read-a-thon starts Monday, March 22nd, 2021.

Today  we will send home instructions on how to activate your reader’s personal page. This is where you will be able to view and record their progress.

We’ve chosen Read-a-thon because it will not take much of your time, gives your child a reason to read and helps in the development of stronger reading skills.

We hope EVERYONE participates.

 

Thanks so much,

Saint Joseph The Worker Catholic Academy
