OMC Parish School Spring Soiree & Hall of Fam e

Congratulations to our 2019 Hall of Fame inductees:  The Ferraro Family, Mrs. Judith Clark and Mr. Alex Sislo.

The Ferraro Family 

John and I moved to 31 W. Northwestern Avenue with our 4 children in 1961 and became parishioners of Our Mother of Consolation. We were so happy to be a part of this beautiful and historical church with such friendly parishioners and welcoming Priests. In the years to come we had a total of 7 children who had received all their sacraments including 5 weddings. Another special benefit of belonging to OMC was having our children attend and graduate from such a highly Academic school led by the Sisters of St. Joseph. Our lives have been blessed with many happy memories of this church, school and community. Thank you!

Mrs. Judith Clark Biography

I was born in Chestnut Hill Hospital.  Both of my parents went to Germantown high school.  I grew up with 3 siblings, in East Oreland and attended Upper Dublin High School. I guess you could say I am a Philly girl.
My husband Gerry and I have been married for 47 years.  We were actually high school sweethearts.  We meet because I was in the color guard and he was in the marching band.  We got married when Gerry was in his last two years of law school.  Ger was an attorney for the City so we needed to live within the city limits.  I graduated Cum Laude from Chestnut Hill College with a BS in elementary education. We have three daughters, Cory, 41, Tracy, 34 and Kelly, 33. We also have 5 grandchildren.

All three of our daughters attended Our Mother of Consolation, Tracy graduated in 1999 and Kelly graduated in 2000.

When we moved to Chestnut Hill I immediately became involved in the community.  I worked at the polls on election days. I also helped with the American Red Cross Blood Drive. I became very involved with the Water Tower Recreation Center and served on the Advisory Council.

I returned to work when Kelly was 3. I helped set up The Water Tower Pre-K program and worked as a teacher of the 3 year olds and an aide with the 4 year olds. I also worked in the pre-k Montessori Program at Norwood Fontbonne Academy. My job before I came to OMC, was at the Prebyterian Church of Chestnut Hill Pre-K Program . I taught the “older three year olds” in addition, I was the school librarian and music teacher.  I was the sixth grade teacher while I was at OMC.

Since, I have retired, I continued to volunteer at OMC, reading in pre-k and occasionally , kindergarten and first grades.  We love spending time with our 5 children, in Princeton and  in Cape May, New Jersey.
