Stairway to Hope and Opportunity

In Lawrence, MA, big things happen and all with the grace of our Good God. In the city, an imposing brick building invites students up the stairway bearing the name: Notre Dame Cristo Rey (NDCR). Founded and transformed by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur (SNDdeN), this stairway raises up each day hundreds of high school students into an “education for life.”
