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 iblais@rihs.org.

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.
