Sunday, May 19, marked the end of an era for Holy Angels Academy in Buffalo as the all-girls private Catholic high school held its 152nd and final commencement exercises for the Class of 2013 at St. Louis R.C. Church in downtown Buffalo.
Tough economic times, marked by declining enrollment and unanticipated financial issues, spelled the end for the school of 250 students, which had been operated since 1861 by the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart. Future plans for the North Buffalo school remain uncertain at this writing. (photo by Terry Duffy)
