Dear Editor: I am a former student of Our Lady of Lourdes grammar school. (A Cristo Rey School Grows in Brooklyn, The Tablet, Nov. 12, 2011).
I attended the school from 1953 to 1960. It was a wonderful school and we had nuns who taught the girls and brothers who taught the boys. I have so many fond memories of that time. The church was so beautiful and I do remember when the outside grotto was built.
I understand that’s gone now. Such a shame. I am happy to hear that the building is now a high school and happy to hear that religion is taught. Just looking at this pictures of the church and the grotto brings back such great memories. Great place to live in those days. Hope the school is a great success!
