We sadly announce the passing of Sister Serafine Della Croce, School Sister of Notre Dame, on Friday, February 2, 2018.  Sr. Serafine served St. Matthias School as principal from 1987 to 2000.  Her faithfulness to the school community never waivered and her prayers were with us even as her health declined.  I am personally grateful for all her friendship, guidance and support.  May she rest in peace.    B Wehnes

    Sister Serafine was my 8th grade teacher at St Anthony of Padua school in south ozone park queens ny in 1970-71……She was an excellent teacher, compassionate and fair! I had a great experience with her and my thoughts have and always will be with her. May she rest in peace with the eternal knowledge that she lived a beautiful, productive, loving life! God just received another angel!

    If there is one teacher that stands out in my school day memories, it is Sister Serafine. She was my 8th grade elementary school teacher at good old St. Anthony of Padua, in South Ozone Park, Queens. I learned so much from her. She was fun, fair, and a great teacher. She was dedicated to her art and faith. She left a lasting impression for sure. A good one has left us for now but the memories live on. Rest in peace Sister Serafine. Until we meet again…
