Looking Back: Our Lady of Refuge Church
Published September 3, 2014
This photograph shows the inside of Our Lady of Refuge Church in the 1930s. It stood on Catalpa Drive where the tennis courts now sit.
The church was later moved to Harvard Road and was renamed Our Lady of LaSalette.
This is the 90th anniversary of Our Lady of LaSalette, and to celebrate, the Berkley Historical Museum, 3338 Coolidge Highway, in the old Fire Hall, has a special display now on the history of the parish. The display will be available until Oct. 1.
James Tong, with the Berkley Historical Museum, came across this photo while compiling it as part of “Images of America: Berkley,” which is available at the Berkley Public Library, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com.
