St. Joseph School opened in 1954, just a year after church members decided an elementary school providing a Catholic-based education was needed in Columbia. Initially, the school offered classes for children in first through sixth grades. However, by the following year a seventh grade was added, followed by the eighth grade in 1956. In 1989 the seventh and eighth grades merged with Cardinal Newman Middle School.

OH, I just love these shots. And right across the street from you! How awesome. I think this in the top 3 of things I miss… churches and cemeteries. Sounds odd, I know, but the above ground gravestones I find strangely comforting, and the old solid churches with stained glass, well they just feel more spiritual. I like the two as a set… The blue of the sky echoed in the blue of Mary’s robe against the white and gray, that just knocks me out. Thanks to Owen, I’m so glad I found this blog!
