The present Rector is Fr. Colbert da Silva. The one person who has been the backbone of the activities and the organization of the past pupils from its inception is the late Bro. Eulalio Vaz, who in his long standing service at St. Joseph’s had established a fond rapport with the students. This rapport was bonded in years after they left their Alma Mater. 

 
The organization of past-pupils has been active in the past and was involved in many a projects like the celebration of the year of the children 1979,the International Youth Year in 1985, and The Night Technical School from 1976-87. This last project has to be discontinued because the purpose for which it was opened was not served.  Over the years the membership has not been as committed as in the past.The only meeting that is held on a regular basis is the Annual Meeting on the 15 of August each year. The present delegate is Rev. Fr. Cyril de Souza. (2016.)
