Our Catholic elementary school--hosting full-day JK/SK through Grade 8--is located in the beautiful town of Stratford, Ontario. With a population of approximately 175 students, the staff, parents and parish team of the St. Joseph's/Immaculate Conception Parish Family have a tradition of working closely to provide quality, faith-based experiences for our children. Our school has been an integral part of the Catholic community of southwest Stratford since 1965. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in the Fall of 2015 -- check us out in the BeaconHerald!

Who Was He?
builder (or carpenter) by trade, Joseph was the earthly husband of
Christ's mother, the Virgin Mary. He was the adoptive/foster father of
Jesus. Joseph was a compassionate and caring man who showed great
willingness to do what God requested of him. He died of natural causes
before the Passion.
Joseph, patron of the universal Church, watch over the Church, our
school and our families as carefully as you watched over Jesus. Help
protect and guide us as you did your adopted son. Amen.
