Graduation at St. Marguerite D’Youville Academy Monday was bittersweet as students and the community said goodbye to the school.
The school, which is run jointly by the Notre Dame Church and St. Mary’s Cathedral parishes – part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ogdensburg –, is set to close this year.
The Rev. F. James Shurtleff, pastor of Notre Dame Church and one of the directors of SMDA, and Rev. Joseph Morgan, V.G., rector at St. Mary’s Cathedral, led St. Marguerite D’Youville Academy in its annual graduation service.
