Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School welcomes the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate to our community! 

For immediate release by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Peterborough and Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School. 

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Peterborough is pleased to welcome the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate to the Diocese. The charism of the Sisters is to faithfully live their religious vocation and to teach the Faith. The SOLI sisters were founded in 1977, and have carried out their apostolate in parishes and schools located in western Ontario. It is their call to Catholic education that brings them to Peterborough. His Excellency Most Reverend Bishop McGrattan says, “We have been in discussion with the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate over the past while as they have discerned God’s call for their religious community and their apostolic work. It is their faith commitment, generous spirit, skills and abilities that bring them to Peterborough. I am thrilled to welcome them into the rich tradition of religious communities that have served and are serving in the Diocese. I assure the Sisters of my prayers and support as they take on their work within the Diocese.”  Read more: Welcome SOLI Sisters!

Miss Martha Marrocco, who has given ten years of devoted service to Wayside Academy, has also answered the call to religious life, joining the SSVM order. Mr. Adam Parker, Principal, noted that the gifts and generosity of our departing teachers will continue to light the way for others.

Sister Infant
“Over the pa
st years it has been my place of work, but I rarely thought of it that way. Wayside is a place to pray, to teach children about God and the world He made, a community of people who strengthen, support and challenge each other to follow Christ more closely. Yes, each one of us is human, and we all make mistakes, but in our community it is obvious that all are trying hard to seek His Kingdom first of all.”

On Nov. 3,  Sister Infant of Prague professed her first vows at the Bascilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. What a blessed event to have witnessed!

Our Goals

We strive to promote a very personal and engaging education system, one permeated with the light of Catholicism and a sense of joy.
