On March 19, the feast of St. Joseph, friends and supporters of Sacred Heart High School, Vineland, gathered to pray for the success of the recently established St. Joseph Society

An auxiliary association, the St. Joseph Society consists of alumni, parents and grandparents of both alunmi and current students, business leaders and community leaders, as well as current staff, faculty and administration.

“Through the establishment of the St. Joseph Society, our goal is to create an endowment fund that can be used for not just physical improvement to our school, but more importantly to sustain the educational mission and spiritual intregity of our school,” said a statement from the Sacred Heart. “The formation of this society is to insure that Sacred Heart High legacy continues its 85-year tradition of providing a quality Catholic education to our current and former students.”

Recognized at the Mass and cocktail reception afterward were Msgr. Joseph Stoerlein, retired pastor of Sacred Heart Parish, and some of the Sisters of St. Joseph who taught at the school.
