39 graduate from Notre Dame Academy

As Sister Kathryn Lawrence McGuiggan gave the invocation for the Notre Dame Academy graduation ceremony Sunday, she reminded those in attendance that “the Holy Spirit would never let a rain drop fall on this event.”

While a few drops did fall, the nearly 300 family, faculty and well-wishers in attendance at the Tyngsborough, Mass., school [S1] were able to avoid the bad weather while congratulating Notre Dame’s graduating class.

Each of the 39 girls from the class of 2009 will be attending colleges ranging from distant schools like the University of Tampa and Syracuse to nearby Nashua Community College and UMass Lowell.
