  • OUR LADY’S ACADEMY
    • This week concluded the in-person academic school year, which began in September 2020. Thanksgiving to Almighty God for all His Blessings that enabled our parish school to operate during these troubled and challenging times.Gratitude to Mrs. Chandra Minor, School Principal, the staff, school nurses, faculty, 350 students together with their families, as well as the PTO and consultative School Board for their collective efforts of all.
  • UPDATE ON CHURCH/SCHOOL LOT RE-GRADIING AND RE-SURFACING PROJECT:
    • The last portion of work on this parking area will take place this summer.  The timing of the project will be determined by the contractor’s availability.  It is my hope that work will begin soon as the school year has now concluded. 
      • Del Vecchio Construction will complete this multi-phased project. They have worked skillfully on other pavement projects at the parish during the past three years. The most important aspect of this job calls for the upgrading of our catch basins.  They will now be pitched at an angle that will provide better drainage to the parking lot. This corrective work is particularly costly but necessary.  It will help greatly in lessening the problems caused by avoidable build-up of ice in the winter months, thus eliminating a major hazard as people walk to and from Church and School. Much of the Church land, including the parking lot, was built in 1963 on re-claimed land.  You may recall that in 2008 this portion of the parking lot was resurfaced because it was collapsing due to the filled land beneath being seriously undermined.  The goal of this project is to avoid future more costly and extensive repairs by preventing this problem from reaching such a serious level again.  Funds for this work will come from prior donations, made by parishioners, to the Church Building Fund.  Further donations are urged to help fund this costly but essential project.  It is of utmost importance to keep the Church Building Fund from being greatly depleted so we may be able to meet other upcoming capital improvement and maintenance projects.  Additionally, the final asphalt layer will be applied over the foundation coat previously installed at the Rectory Parking Area. Funding for this job will come mostly from the Patricia Dorin Restricted Bequest. Replacement of the fence along Bow Street is also expected at some point this summer.

God bless all of you and your families,

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. James M. DiPerri, Pastor

PARISH VIDEO - PRE-COVID THROUGH SUMMER 2020

Dear Parishioners:

A 16 minute video has been produced by volunteers highlighting some key moments of life here at Our Lady’s Parish in Waltham, MA, before and during the Coronavirus pandemic, through the summer of 2020. 

The photography, audio and layout was conducted by parishioner, Lou Alvarez.  The layout on the iMovie was done by a volunteer videographer and technician, and Kristina Kovacevich, worked on the final portion of the video formatting.  On behalf of the parish, I express our gratitude for their dedication and quality work. 

I am especially thankful to God for all His blessings and for all who strive to advance the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ at our parish, as we work together with those within our archdiocese and beyond.  May Almighty God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, continue to strengthen each one of us during these challenging times.  May the Blessed Virgin Mary continue to pray for us before the Throne of God.  Together we journey as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Please know of my prayers for you and your families, as I kindly ask you to pray for me, and the needs of others throughout the world.  Click HERE for video.

In Christ,

Fr. James M. DiPerri, Pastor
