Saint Joseph Academy's Community Prayer Breakfast is an opportunity for friends and supporters of the Academy to honor individuals who have made a difference in their communities and established themselves as leaders in a variety of professional fields. The event allows us to celebrate the many graduates who are innovators throughout the world and whose lives still embody our mission to serve. 

Recipients are awarded the President's Distinguished Community Service Award and is considered the premier, highest and most prestigious award presented by the Academy to an individual and/or organization that are involved in a community service leadership position. The award is in recognition of individuals/organizations that illustrate the ideals of the Marist tradition of the Academy and has enriched the heritage of humanity.
