St. Joseph's Catholic Elementary School

2016 Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission!

"The Lord is my rock . . . in whom I take refuge."

~ Psalm 18:2

Every year our Diocesan Appeal, Journey of Hearts & Hands, raises $325,000 for capital improvements for our Island Catholic Schools.

For example, these funds were used for the $1.4 million seismic upgrade provided by the Diocese to St. Patrick’s school this past summer, and the $6 million seismic upgrade and expansion of St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Victoria in 2014.

Our Annual Appeal allows us to assist vital education projects—Let's Rock the Mission!
