On February 15, 2016, Fr. Crane addressed students, benefactors, staff and family with a few words. Afterward he blessed the ground where the new edifice will be located. Many eyes anxiously looked on as Fathers Crane and Bibeau dug their shovels into the ground where the new school building is to be built. The Academy educational staff was very pleased to see the official kick-off of the new construction. The four new classrooms will be the happy home of the eager students and will provide much needed room for the noble work of education. At the close of the ceremony, all present sung the Ave Regina Caelorum in gratitude and entrusting the project to Our Lady.
