More than 50 members from the Class of 1969 at Our Lady of Angels School (OLA), including two teachers, Brother Lawrence Boyle and Mrs. Selma Jean Matouk Quinn, gathered at Greenhouse Cafe in Bay Ridge to celebrate a milestone reunion, May 4.
For their 50th year class reunion, they visited their former elementary, now Holy Angels Catholic Academy, for a picture in the school gymnasium – the same location where the class stood in 1964 for their first Holy Communion.
“Somehow the angels above smiled upon us,” said Jack La Torre.
OLA committee member Angelique Piwinski said, “… in the end, we had 59 alumni and two of our teachers in the same room 50 years later, hugging, laughing and remembering the incredible experiences that we all shared as students at Our Lady of Angels school.”
The group raised more than $2,000 in donations for the Catholic Academy.
