St. Rose, Chelsea, Massachusetts

In 1889, the Sisters of Providence were asked by the pastor to staff St. Rose School (grade and high) in Chelsea, Massachusetts. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur had been teaching there, but the pastor wanted to include boys, and these sisters taught only girls. The high school closed in 1987 because of a great decrease in enrollment. The grade school remained open until the St. Rose of Lima Parish announced its closure prior to the 2020-21 academic year, citing declining enrollment and the COVID-19 pandemic as the Archdiocese’s reasons for closing a total of four Catholic schools.

Alumni

With the closing of St. Rose, all alumni records are now held by St. Rose of Lima Rectory, 601 Broadway, Chelsea, MA 02150. Those interested in updating information should contact the Rectory at 617-889-2774. Please keep your information updated with both the parish and Sisters of Providence to ensure that you will receive information that pertains to all alumnae/i.
