It was a beautiful day. Bishop Frederick Campbell blessed the grounds as well as the NC student body. Campaign Chair Mike Massaro told the gathering how proud he is to be a 1966 graduate of Newark Catholic and how proud he is of the Newark community for helping make this campaign a success during some of the most difficult economic times in our country’s history.


Asbestos has been removed from the convent area. Several trees have been cut down to make room for expansion. Demolition of the convent will be in the next couple weeks.


The project is scheduled to be completed by June 2012.




Thank you to everyone that has made this project possible!
