In 1955, St. Joseph's Catholic School was opened in Wenatchee. According to their website, that first year "four sisters of St. Joseph of Peace instructed a total of 230 students in grade one through four. Since then, the school has taught more than 8,500 children! The last Sister of St. Joseph of Peace left the school in the late 80s, but Sister Tonia stayed in Wenatchee until a few years ago, working with the diocese. I visited the site of St. Joseph school as well. You could see our presence and charism just in the school sign, which includes a peace dove!
The neighbors probably thought I was crazy, but I also took a picture of the street sign. Because you see, much to my surprise and delight, St. Joseph's Catholic School is located at the corner of .... yup, you guessed it if you looked at the title of this blog post .... at the corner of St. Joseph Place and Susan Place! How perfect!
