The Story of St. Mary’s School
(As told by the Second Grade of 2001)
1838 - Large numbers of German speaking Catholics began to arrive in Newark.
1842 - St. Mary’s Parish is founded by 60 families with Rev. Balleis, OSB on the corner of Court and Howard Streets.
1843 - First German Catholic Parochial School opened with 40 children.
1846 - St. Mary’s Church is moved to the corner of William St. where the present St. Mary Hall stands today.
1857 - Early summer, 6 Benedictine Sisters left St. Joseph’s Monastery in St. Mary’s, Elk County, PA and arrived in Newark on July 27.
1863 A three story brick school was built on corner of Shipman and William Streets.
1968 In June the Benedictine Sisters withdrew from St. Mary’s School. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Chestnut Hill, PA took up the work begun by the Benedictines Sisters.
2001 March The ground breaking ceremony for the new St. Mary School took place. Traditional African dancing claimed this site as holy and free from evil.
2001 August Trucks and friends carried all of the belongings of St. May’s School into the new building on William Street.
2001 September There was a Parish Mass with a procession to the new school. The ceremony included a dedication of a Peace Pole using 8 languages to represent the past and present communities.
2005 This year 240 boys and girls from Kindergarten to eighth grade fill St. Mary’s School and the long tradition of excellence in education and Christian Formation continues.
