We celebrate the Feast of Saint Joseph on March 19 th . “Saint Joseph is a man of great spirit. He is great in faith, not because he speaks his own words, but above all because he listens to the words of the Living God. He listens in silence. And his heart ceaselessly perseveres in the readiness to accept the Truth contained in the word of the Living God,” Pope John Paul II had once said.

We can see from his actions in Scripture that Joseph was a compassionate man, and obedient to the will of God. He also loved Mary and Jesus and wanted to protect and provide for them.

This prayer is among the earliest prayers to St. Joseph, (from around A.D. 50) and also one of the best known:

Oh St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.

Oh St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your divine son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.

Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss his fine head for me, and ask him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen

Peace,
Mrs. Ann T. Sarpu

Dear Parents:

Corpus Christi School uses the Child Lures School Program and will be teaching it between now and the end of the year. The Child Lures School Program improves self-reliance, raises self-esteem and helps students master personal safety skills, all while reassuring them that most people are kind, safe and committed to their well-being. Through a few lessons, students learn to identify specific lures used in crimes against youngsters and how to employ proven prevention strategies. The Program also teaches Internet Safety, Drug Resistance, and School Violence Prevention.

We recognize that you may have concerns as to whether or not the material in the Child Lures School Program is appropriate for your child. If you wish, you may come to school to view the material that is being used or visit the website at www.childluresprevention.com . If for some reason you do not want your child to participate in the Child Lures School Program, please respond to this note via email to your child’s teacher by Wednesday, March 13 th .  


Sincerely,

Ann T. Sarpu
Principal
