Attention all Catholic School Graduates

The Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket, RI is a very fascinating place despite its rather uninspired name. It is devoted to the history of the immigrants (largely French-Canadian) and the mills of that area. It features a very realistic reproduction of Precious Blood Church in Woonsocket, as well as an old Catholic School Classroom, factory setting, and living room.

They are attempting to assemble a Catholic Schools Archive and are inviting former Catholic School Students from anywhere in the world to contribute to the effort. Please share any or all of the following:

- Individual pictures, class pictures, group pictures, yearbook pictures, pictures with Nuns and Brothers (up to 8 1/2" x 11")
- Memorabilia of your days in Catholic School
- a one-page "composition" recalling your school days

Please submit any pictures and written materials with proper identification to:

Eugene A. Peloquin
Museum of Work and Culture
42 South Main Street
Woonsocket, RI 02895

or email to Irene Blaies at

If you have any questions, please call the museum at 401-769-9675

I went years ago with Jeff and Lissa and a small homeschool group. Its where my Mum grew up. I loved the model of the church and the guide welcoming us in French. One of the recorded voices sounds like my gramma.
