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.” 

Further to that, His Excellency expressed his appreciation for the Priests of the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) and the Sisters of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara (SSVM) saying, “I am thankful that the Priests of the Institute of the Incarnate Word and the Sisters of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara have supported the school so faithfully through the celebration of the sacraments, and instruction in Religious Education and Latin. The apostolic ministry of the IVE family of priests and sisters has supported the Wayside community well, even fostering one vocation from our community to the religious family of the SSVM.”

Joseph Devereaux, Chancellor/Judicial Vicar for the Diocese of Peterborough will serve as the Episcopal Designate on the Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School Board of Directors effective September 1, 2016.

Pilon and acknowledge his years of service to Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School Board of Directors. “I express my gratitude to Fr. Pilon for his devoted and faithful service. I thank Fr. Devereaux for his willingness to begin serving on the Board anew. Fr. Devereaux has chaired the Special Review Committee during the past year and will assist with furthering the recommendations from the Special Review Committee’s Interim Report at the Board and school levels.”

Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education A growing number of Catholic schools are embracing Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education as an excellent, time-tested way to fulfill the goals of Catholic education. Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education is the program offered at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic School.

Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education leads students to Christ by immersing them in the riches of the civilization His gospel-inspired, and by guiding them in the development of the theological, intellectual, and moral virtues. The classical liberal arts of grammar, logic, and rhetoric give students the interior tools to benefit from the best that has been said and written, to avoid being manipulated by the subtle use of words and images, and to lead others to love and live the truth. The classical approach integrates the curriculum and the life of the school, cultivating all that is truly human in each student and fostering a community of faith-filled learners.

The revival of Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education truly has been a grassroots movement that has included secular as well as non-Catholic Christian schools and homeschools. Many remarkable, reflective individuals have been inspired by looking back at the education of the past – Greek, Roman, Hebrew, and Christian – and have been inventive in finding new ways to bring its blessings to today's schools. They have come up with many related but different accounts to guide themselves and explain to others what they are doing. These common factors seem to capture the heart of the Classical Liberal Arts and Science Education movement.

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.
