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.
