Located at 30 Douglas St., the vintage, 4-floor building sits on a beautiful, treed lot overlooking the Saint John River. A stone’s throw from the property is St. Peter’s Ball field where St. Peter’s ball team wowed the crowds in the stands for years.

In the shaded backyard, is a grotto with a statue-depiction of Mary appearing to Bernadette at Lourdes, France. Flowers and shrubs, tended for years by the priests and parishioners, surround the grounds…adding to its serenity.

What once was the home of many priests and brothers is now bustling with children of all ages. Although most of the building would be unrecognizable to the previous residents, one thing has remained the same – the chapel.

Here the walls are adorned with three beautiful frescos. One painting shows the Redemptorist saints gloriously entering heaven with Mary and the angels. Another depicts Sister Margaret Mary’s encounter with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Another portrays a rare glimpse of the death of Saint Joseph with Mary and Jesus by his side.

We absolutely love this building we call home! Five classrooms, housing nine grades, are equipped with the latest in educational technology: computers and SMART Boards. In addition to classrooms, we have a full sized gymnasium, library, art room, staff room, main office and marketing office.  

Our halls are lined with the colours of the Divine Mercy image; our Namesake - a daily reminder to us that we were founded upon and continue to grow in mercy.

Our cozy classrooms are often what parents fall in love with during tours of the school - the classroom atmosphere creates a space of comfort for students while maintaining a call to high academic standards at each grade level.

Our school yard has plenty of space for physical activity. We started off with no playground and didn't have the funds to install one. The students took it upon themselves to pray every day that we would find the money to build a play structure. Sure enough, their prayers were heard and a playground was installed! Many recesses and lunch breaks are filled with lively soccer or hockey games, fun on the playground or running games in the field.

Our quaint library encourages a love of reading. Fun fact: This library was used by the Redemptorist Priests before we moved in and continues to offer a beautiful and cozy space for reading and learning.

Our split classes encourage a balance of teamwork and independent working. We love the outcome of having two grades in the same class as it encourages the younger students to look up to their older peers and we foster a sense of leadership in the older students, allowing them to help the younger grade in their class. This creates a wonderful dynamic in our school!
