The arts are important at St. Joe and have a long legacy here! For generations, students have taken part in plays throughout the school year.
Students grow in confidence by means of the plays put on at St. Joe. Many also discover talents they didn’t know they had, and all are able to build their talents through the arts program at St. Joe.
To celebrate the parish’s 150th anniversary, the pastor, Fr. Mike Keucher, wrote and directed a play. The play, The St. Joe Show, incorporated all students and the performance took place at the Strand on March 19, 2018. Since then, Fr. Mike has written a play twice each year!
