In 1967, Canada celebrated its 100th Birthday. But also that year it marked the end of an era in the former Town of Newcastle with the closing of Saint Mary’s Convent/ High School after many years of educating young girls from the Miramichi Region and beyond. This year marks 50 years since its closure and plans for a reunion to commemorate Saint Mary’s are well underway.

A celebration will be held at the Parish Centre of Saint Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Newcastle at 360 Newcastle Boulevard on Saturday July 8th and Sunday July 9th, 2017. Pre-registration for this event is required on or before Friday April 7th, 2017. The cost is $45 per person, which includes a meet and greet, supper, mass and closing luncheon.

Organisers are currently looking for pictures, stories, and other memorabilia for a slideshow presentation.

For tickets please contact Susan Butler by telephone at 622-1780 or email at or Roberta Innis by email at .
