Upcoming Events :


Religious Education eighth, ninth and tenth graders are invited to join other Catholic teens to experience the joy of following Christ at this year’s Steubenville East Youth Conference at UMASS Lowell from July 13-15, 2018. A group from Our Lady’s participated last year and enjoyed an inspiring and rewarding weekend. So much so, we would like to organize a group again. Hosted by Life Teen, Steubenville East Youth Conference is an experience for incoming high school freshmen through outgoing high school seniors and includes engaging liturgies, inspiring music and moving talks. Evangelistic in nature, this weekend conference is an energetic combination of presenting the Gospel message of love, grace and mercy while offering opportunities for prayer and fellowship. Please call or email Felicia Forger at 781-894-3481 x3 or religiouseducation@olca.org for more information.

  • On Saturday, December 16th, 2017, Religious Education Grades 6-7-8 participated in an Advent Field Trip to the Seaport District and North End of Boston. We visited the beautiful Seaport Shrine of Our Lady of Good Voyage, where each of us lit a candle for our personal prayer intentions, and learned of the history and significance of that particular architecture and the stained glass windows of the church. This was followed by an authentic, delicious Italian lunch at Spagnuolo’s Restaurant at 240 Hanover Street in Boston. We then made our way to Sacred Heart Church across the street from Paul Revere’s House and admired the artistry of many statues of the saints which truly grace the walls of both the upper and lower churches. At St. Stephen Church, Father DiPerri told us of the miraculous stories of both Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patron Saint of the Americas, and St. Faustina Kowalska whose apparitions of Christ inspired our devotion of the Divine Mercy of Jesus. Artwork of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Divine Mercy of Jesus are prominently displayed in the church. Because of preparations for the Cardinal’s visit on December 17th, we could not enter St. Leonard Church, but we did get to peek through the glass in the doors to see the magnificent renovations. Before we boarded the bus for Our Lady’s Parking Lot, we stopped for a hot chocolate at the well-known Café Vittoria. Of course, during the entire course of the day, Father DiPerri shared his vast knowledge of the buildings, history and events of Boston, past and present.

  • On Sunday, December 10th 2017, Confirmation students in Grades 9 and 10 brought some Christmas Cheer to Meadow Green Rehabilitation Center and Waltham Crossings Assisted Living Center. The residents sang Christmas Carols with our students who also recited the Readings of the Day and distributed small bottles of holy water. Some of the students and residents tried their hand at a Christmas Craft. Waltham Crossings was even entertained by special guest "Elvis" in the singing of carols! Last year Meadow Green was treated to a visit by "Elvis"! Thank you to our Confirmation students for this happy morning at both Centers. 
  • Confirmation students in Grades 9 and 10 enjoyed a wonderful Advent Field Trip to the North End on Saturday, December 9th. The snow simply added another festive touch to a great afternoon! We began by eating an authentic, delicious Italian lunch at Spagnuolo's Restaurant at 240 Hanover Street. Father Claude Scrima, OFM then met us at St. Leonard Church right up the street where we learned of cultural influences on the churches in the North End. We were so privileged to see the brand new beautiful renovations made to St. Leonard Church revealing the true artistry and breath-taking magnificence of this building. Continuing up Hanover Street, we stopped by the statue of Paul Revere and Father DiPerri shared interesting historical facts and stories of that era. We visited St. Stephen Church across the street from the statue which actually has nails made by Paul Revere in the structure. Ending our trip was a visit to the Seaport Shrine of Our Lady of Good Voyage, which also is newly renovated and a landmark in the Seaport District. During our bus ride to and from Our Lady's, Father DiPerri entertained the group with a variety of tales and accounts of the colorful history of Boston pointing-out notable points of interest along the way.
