WESTON—Each year, St. Patrick School in Weston bestows the Spirit of St. Joseph Award to a student who exemplifies the virtues of the saint. Those virtues are: hard work, obedience to God’s commands, service, and a “quiet approach to life.” The school’s honoree for this year is sixth-grader Kara Determan. She was presented the award by Kathy Riley, an associate of the Sisters of the Congregation of St. Joseph, dur- ing a school Mass at St. Patrick Church on March 19, the Solemnity of St. Joseph.
