BIDDEFORD---As part of its 25th anniversary celebration, St. James School in Biddeford will welcome Bishop Robert P. Deeley for an anniversary Mass at St. Joseph Church, located on 178 Elm Street in Biddeford, on Sunday, September 17, at 11 a.m.
Following the Mass, an open house and reception will be held at the school (25 Graham Street). All are invited to attend both the Mass and reception, especially multigenerational families, couples, or individuals who have attended Catholic school in the area.
St. James was so named after the consolidation of St. Joseph’s, St. Andre’s, and St. Mary’s Elementary Schools.
“We are also using this anniversary to give thanks to God for Catholic education in the Biddeford/Saco area for over 100 years,” said Sister Terry Gauvin, a Biddeford native who is the Provincial of the American Province of the Good Shepherd Sisters of Quebec and an anniversary committee member. “We are blessed.”
