OUR LADY'S ACADEMY INTERNATIONAL DAY - JANUARY 14

On Monday, January 14, our parish school, Our Lady's Academy, hosted an "Internation Day."  The event was wonderfully organized by parishioner, Lou Alvarez, cominging the link between parish and school.  The day celebrated the many cultures and ethnic backgrounds that give Our Lady's Academy its global atmosphere.  During the morning, the students visited classrooms representing each country.  They viewed videos and read articles about the history and culture of each particular country.  Before lunch, the children prayed a decade of the rosary in ten different languages.  Mr. Giles said a prayer and our pastor, Fr. DiPerri blessed everyone.  Lunch was then served by parents and teachers.  There was authentic food made by parents; fried rice was donated by Waltham's Sichuan Garden and some food was purchased at ethnic restaurants for all to sample.  Lunch ended with good ole American apple pie and vanilla ice cream that was donated by Star Market on Lexington Street.  In culmination of this day long event, the students engaged in a variety of ethnic dances led by Marcy Van Cleave, a professional folk dance instructor.  It was a great day!
