The inscription on the back of one of the photos reads: "A Progress photo of the construction of the new school just prior to the blessing and laying of the cornerstone on June 30, 1962 at 2:30 p.m. during the week of the Anniversary of the Ukr. Cath. Hierarchy of Canada and the Eucharistic Congress. Ceremony is to be performed by His Grace Metropolitan Maxime Hermaniuk, Their Excellencies Bishops I. Prashko and J. Gabro. Assisting will be nine clergy, six altar boys and the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus acting as Honor Guard."
