…O death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?
Christ is risen and you are abolished. Christ is risen and the demons are cast down. Christ is risen and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen and life is freed.
Christ is risen and the tomb is emptied of the dead: for Christ, being risen from the dead, has become the Leader and Reviver of those who had fallen asleep.
To Him be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen."
A gallery of photos from the events and celebration of Saint Patrick's Day 2014.
After the controversy of the South Boston parade (see more here) it was great to see that the Boston and New York parades were so successful! ....and of course, Talent Night is always a favorite!
Saint Patrick has triumphed once again!…
After all the plans were approved, the ground was broken for the new gym-building project on the feast of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, October 13, 2010. Since then the facility slowly taken shape, as the Brothers, volunteers and various construction workers chip away at it. We are so excited to see the project nearing completion and look forward to having our various school and monastery events in it!
To all outward appearances activity at MacIsaac Hall, now blanketed in snow, seems to be at a standstill; but do not be deceived. Unless the Center’s truck is busy snow plowing it can be seen almost every day parked outside MacIsaac Hall along with many other vehicles. Within the walls, the Brothers and builders are getting down to the “nitty gritty” of all that makes such a facility usable.
Every day students attend the Traditional Latin Mass. The Liturgical Year is the heartbeat of Immaculate Heart of Mary School. Students celebrate feastdays and Holy Days according to the traditional calendar. Each has deep spiritual meaning in the Catholic Liturgical Year.

Just as other churches accommodate their parishioners, IHM gives first consideration to families of the Third Order members of St. Benedict Center. All who are applying for the school must meet certain requirements:
Immaculate Heart of Mary School was started in 1976 in response to the needs of families who identified a crisis in Catholic education. At IHM traditional education, based on the Catholic Faith, is taught at all levels, putting into perspective Gods creation and the eternal responsibilities and goals of man, with no apologies.
Et cum Spiritu tuo… If you are 50 years or older, chances are you would remember this response of the altar boys who served the Latin Mass in your local parish until the liturgical changes in the 1960’s. They remind us of the days where discipline and structure gave expression to our prayer life, when it was an awesome privilege to serve Mass, knowing that it was the re-enactment of Calvary.
