O God of love, compassion, and healing, look on us, people of many different faiths 
and traditions, who gather today at this site, the scene of incredible violence and pain. 
We ask you in your goodness 
to give eternal light and peace 
to all who died here-- 
the heroic first-responders: 
our fire fighters, police officers, emergency service workers, and Port Authority personnel, along with all the innocent men and women 
who were victims of this tragedy simply because their work or service brought them here on September 11, 2001.

We ask you, in your  compassion  to bring healing to those  who, because of their presence here that day,  suffer from injuries and illness.  Heal, too, the pain of still-grieving families  and all who lost loved ones in this tragedy.   Give them strength to continue their lives  with courage and hope. 

We are mindful as well 
of those who suffered death, injury, and loss on the same day at the Pentagon and in 
Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Our hearts are one with theirs as our prayer embraces their pain and suffering. 

God of peace, bring your peace to our violent world: peace in the hearts of all men and women and peace among the nations of the earth. Turn to your way of love those whose hearts and minds are consumed with hatred. 

God of understanding, 
overwhelmed by the magnitude of this tragedy, 
we seek your light and guidance as we confront such terrible events. Grant that those whose lives were spared 
may live so that the lives lost here may not have been lost in vain.

Comfort and console us, 
strengthen us in hope, 
and give us the wisdom and courage to work tirelessly for a world where true peace and love reign among nations and in the hearts of all.

Pope Benedict XI--Prayer at Ground Zero 
New York, 20 April 2008 

For the Church, that she may continue to provide care  and healing for all, especially those affected by the attacks on September 11, 2001

For all victims of violence and terrorism around the world, and for their families, that they may find comfort and peace

For an end to violence in our world

For those suffering natural disaster

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of forming a Hope Squad at Saint Joseph Catholic Elementary School. A Hope Squad is a peer-to-peer based organization of students who are trained in how to reach out to their fellow classmates.

The trained students reach out to those who may be struggling, provide friendship and hope, and seek help from adults. It will be comprised of a group of 6th-8th grade students who have been identified by their fellow students as showing trustworthiness and a concern for others. 

They will be a vital part of spreading hope, inspiration, and connection throughout our community. Hope Squads have been proven successful in many schools throughout the State of Utah as an important part of suicide prevention efforts. 

If you would like additional information on the purpose or history of Hope Squads, please see the attached link or contact Mrs. Tate, our School Counselor.

Thursday, September 13th: ] Pre3-4th Grade pictures will be taken.  Please have your child wear their regular uniform to school.

Friday, September 14th:
5th-8th Grade pictures will be taken.  Please have your child wear their regular uniform to school.

Flyers and envelopes to order pictures were sent home last week in the Wednesday Envelope.   

Please use correct change when ordering pictures - the office will not be able to make change.   


We are in need of volunteers to help out on picture day.  Please call the front office and let them know your availability.

Thank you! 


We are looking forward to welcoming our new Student Council Members for the 2018-2019 school year.

The students gave the speeches this morning, Wednesday, September 12th so the results will be in shortly. 

Good luck to everyone running for office in the Middle School. 

Stay tuned for the results in next week's newsletter!
