Trust In God, Pride In Self, Dignity Of All

At St Joseph’s, we believe our motto holds true, where every human life is sacred and the dignity of the human person is the foundation of our intrinsic worth. We trust that God is our compass, keeping us on the right path. 

‘As a community, we have an obligation to ensure that every person lives with dignity and has sufficient opportunities for his or her integral development.’ (Pope Francis, Brothers and Sisters to Us [Fratelli Tutti], no. 118)
