Kenosha's St. Joseph Catholic Academy celebrates 60th anniversary with Marian focus

To mark 60 years of Catholic education, St. Joseph Catholic Academy began the 2017 school year with an all-school Mass, consecrating the school and the school community to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Celebrating the Mass with faculty and students was the Rev. Todd Belardi, St. Joseph Catholic Academy’s chaplain, religion teacher and Theology Department chairman; the Rev. William Hayward, pastor of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church, and the Rev. Allen Alexander, parochial vicar of the Holy Rosary parish.

The Sept. 8 Mass coincided with the birthday of Mary, the mother of Jesus, said Robert Freund, principal and president of St. Joseph Catholic Academy.

“As Catholics, we hold Mary in high esteem and honor her as the mother of Jesus. Through consecration to Mary, we enhance our love for God by asking Mary to intercede on our behalf, taking our cares, concerns and prayers to her son,” he explained. “My hope and prayer for this school year is that we all join together in this Marian Consecration, giving ourselves, our efforts, our prayers and deeds to the care of our Blessed Mother.”
