Social Justice

Food for learning volunteering.jpgTerry Fox Run Development and Peace Walk

One of the most distinctive features of our Roman Catholic faith is our Church's rich tradition of social teaching. It is critical to the unique profile of Catholic education that this teaching be explicitly integrated not only into the curriculum but also into the overall life of our school communities.

Our students, staff, parents, trustees, and pastors have traditionally involved themselves in a wide range of social action activities. Whether it is a food or clothing drive, a class discussion about poverty in our world, or participation in a public demonstration, our Catholic schools demonstrate consistent leadership in these areas.

At St. Joseph Catholic School we showcase our commitment to social justice through initiatives such as:

- Terry Fox Run

- Christmas Sharing Baskets

- Food Drives for the Gleaner's Food Bank

- Development and Peace Walk

- Food for Learning
