When the Philadelphia Archdiocese announced school mergers for nearly half of its current 156 schools throughout the Greater Philadelphia region, it created 49 new Catholic Regional Schools.
Among the schools to merge were Our Lady Help of Christians (OLHC) in Abington into St. David School in Willow Grove. The schools are located less than three miles apart from one another.
Queen of Angels went into operation starting this year and recently celebrated its 100th day of service on Friday, Feb. 15. To commemorate the occasion, students and teachers from the Lower School (Pre to 2nd grade) formed the number "100" in the parking lot as well as other student activities.
"For 100th day the kids took the picture and kindergarten made pictures with 100 of their favorite things and 2nd grade listed 100 reasons they loved queen of angels," Queen of Angels representative told Patch.
