 150 Magnolia Street, Dorchester
Built 1912
James E. McLaughlin, Architect

Bishop Benedict Fenwick (1783-1846) was born in Maryland, graduated from Georgetown University and ordained a Jesuit priest in 1808. After Bishop Fenwick was appointed Bishop of Boston in 1822, he expanded the diocese from three to 40 churches and founded The Pilot, the diocesan paper.

Apparently this school is no longer in existence.
