In honor of St. Joseph’s day, Sacred Heart of Jesus School’s second grade class wrote letters to the Sisters of St. Joseph at the Mount St. Mary Convent in Wichita, KS. The Sisters of St. Joseph played a significant part in Sacred Heart School’s history because in 1929, the sisters were invited to assume the direction of Sacred Heart of Jesus School which is one of Baton Rouge’s first Diocesan parochial schools. 

The first staff consisted of Sister Mary Frances, principal; Sister Hilda Marie Adele, Sister Celeste Marie, Misses Chetta Cangelosi, Maggie Lee Jolly, Helen Rowe, Mrs. Frank Jones and Mrs. Vernon Broussard. Today, the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph still provides the spirit which continues to make Sacred Heart of Jesus School a vibrant faith community.
