As the school year comes to a close, celebrate Mass with St. Joseph School at the 9:00 AM Mass on Friday, June 8th (8th grade graduation day), and the last day of school on Friday, June 15th.
"O God of all beginnings and endings, We praise and thank you for the gift of this school year. It has been a time filled with grace and blessings, With challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows.
The days have passed quickly, O Lord. The weeks, the months, the seasons, the holidays, and holy days. The exams, vacations, breaks, and assemblies, All have come forth from your hand.
The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest awhile.” People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place. People saw them leaving and many came to know about it. They hastened there on foot from all the towns and arrived at the place before them. (Mark 6:30-34)
Gracious and loving God, watch over us in these final days of school. Guide each day as you have done this past year. Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit. Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion and bless us all."
