Fr. Stephen Rooney
February 10, 1954-August 201th, 2020


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
That never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
Implored thy help,
Or sought they intercession,
Was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins my Mother,
To thee do I come; before thee I stand,
Sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word incarnate!
Despise not my petitions, but,
In thy mercy,
Hear and answer me.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

From the Desk of the Principal…

My heart is full! Welcoming students into the building this past Thursday has brought such joy.  Our past weeks have been filled with preparation to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all of our students learning both in person and through distance learning.  It is with great pride to share with the parish that our student enrollment is growing leaps and bounds and some of our classes currently now have waiting lists. Although our school year has officially begun, we are still welcoming students throughout the year. Please continue to pray for our student body and staff for a successful 20/21 school year.

Mr. David Evans, Principal


We the people of Our Lady on the River Parish state in a common voice that we are a united Catholic community, bringing together three unique sites, each one being essential to the whole.
We welcome all people into our community. We support the human and spiritual needs of each person with dignity, which strengthens our bond as members of one Body sustained by the Eucharist.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to the formation in our Catholic faith at all ages. We will provide a deep and firm foundation for our youth through Catholic education and good example.
We reach out to the greater community through our acts of service and prayer through the intercession of Mary, our Blessed Mother.
