Fr. Faucher

Diocese of Boise’s Statement

St. Joseph’s was mentioned in an Idaho Statesman article. I was asked for information regarding this situation, and I had none to provide and directed the reporter to Gene Fadness.

If students in grades k-5 bring Fr. Faucher’s situation up at school, teachers are directed to let students know it is never alright to harm children. If a student has questions they will be urged to ask their parents or Mrs. Porter, the school counselor.

If students in grades 6-8 bring Fr. Faucher’s situation up at school, teachers are directed to let students know harming children, pornography, and drugs are never condoned. If a student has questions they will be urged to ask their parents or Mrs. Porter, the school counselor.

Catholic Schools Week  

We had a great Catholic Schools Week with Saint costumes, a successful philanthropic pledge to Learning Lab, Mass, and Sock Hop. It was a great week highlighting what is great about our school and community, and is starts with our wonderful students. Thank you for choosing St. Joseph’s Catholic School and allowing us the opportunity to work with your children.
