Fond Memories of Catholic Schools in Chicago

I love this video, which I found at Msgr. Charles Pope’s blog.

So glad I had the fantastic education depicted in some of these historic shots.  I knew one of the narrators, Fr. Arturo Perez, who was a young priest at Maternity B.V.M. Parish when I taught fifth grade at the parish school.  I remember him telling me how very excited he was that he would be leaving to study liturgy at one of the finest Catholic Universities in the country.

There is also glimpse of a Pope John XXIII School uniform on one of the contemporary models.  I taught at that Pope John school and my daughter Catherine was a student at that time.
