On March 24, Bishop Kevin Vann issued a decree stating that Holy Rosary Catholic School is to become a parish school of St. Joseph Parish.
When South Arlington Catholic School opened its doors in 1995, it was under the supervision of the Diocesan Bishop rather than any one parish.
Through the years, the Catholic identity of the school and its bonds of communion with the entire Dioccese of Fort Worth became ever clearer and stronger, a new name was chosen. The name -- Holy Rosary Catholic School -- reflected the Church's age-old devotion to the mother of God:
Through the years, the relationship between Holy Rosary ad St. Joseph's parish had grown, as St. Joseph provided much of the pastoral and spiritual care for the students.
Bishop Vann decreed that the school will take on a third name. St. Joseph Catholic School will debut during the 2013-14 academic school year.
