The school is one of the largest in the city, and demonstrates the fact, that Father Cody is an education of practical experience. Under his direction, the immense brown stone structure fronting on Madison and Elm Streets has been completed and fitted up with every convenience for school purposes. The school is now absolutely free, and the children of the humblest parishioner is recognized as the equal of the more fortunate.

The attendance has increased from two hundred and fifty to nearly twelve hundred children and Sister of Charity have been place in charge of the parochial school.
