Hello STCS Students, Families, Faculty, and Staff,
I would like to welcome our students and families, returning and new, to Saint Theresa Catholic School. My name is Father Joachim Adeyemi (Father Joe) and upon my arrival at Saint Theresa July 1st, Father Chuck Kieffer appointed me Campus Chaplain of our school as part of my responsibilities.
I am a priest of Ilorin Diocese in Nigeria and came to the Diocese of Phoenix in 2012. Since 2012, I have served in three different parishes in the Valley. The journey from Nigeria to the Valley and throughout my various assignments has been tough but rewarding like the journey of our students from Pre-school to graduation from 8th grade.
As Campus Chaplain, you will see me often on campus, visiting with students in class, participating in school events, activities, and of course our weekly all-school Mass.
It is a great delight and honor to be part of the school community. I am looking forward to serving in your midst. Let us all have a great school year.
