We experienced a faith-filled day at St. Mary’s on January 22nd. In lieu of going to Washington, D.C. to attend the March for Life, students had a faith-filled day here at our school. Students began the day making an advertisement for life, followed by Mass, Adoration and praying of the Stations for Life. Students in grades 10-12 then went to Planned Parenthood for a peaceful hour of prayer with Bishop McManus. The remainder of the students made cards for the moms at visitation house and wrote letters to their legislators. We concluded our day by watching Heaven is for Real. I was so impressed by the sincerity of our students on this very special day.

St. Mary’s Schools begin a new chapter with our new art program under the direction of Mr. McGaw. We are thankful to the Benedict family for making this possible in memory of their daughter Jamie.
On September 5, 1915 the doors of St. Mary’s School opened and welcomed its first students. For one hundred years, thousands of children and young adults have received an education at St. Mary’s. This year, one hundred years later, St. Mary’s remains committed to creating an atmosphere conducive to both academic excellence and the growth of each individual student recognizing the gifts which have been given to them by God.
We are proud to announce that the Carolyn Boyles Scholarship will go to a teacher from St. Mary’s School in Massachusetts. Ms. Cindy Ahearn, who is an administrator at the school, submitted the application for the scholarship. In her own words Cindy shared that “her school is doing its best to stay open for the residents of the nearby neighborhoods. The parents are supportive and committed to doing their best for their children. I want to bring Tools to St. Mary’s to give the students the best program possible and to give the parents something to be proud of in their school”.
We are proud to welcome such committed educators into our professional development series. We look forward to receiving updates on all the fine work they will do as a result of the scholarship.READ MORE…

When visiting St. Mary’s Schools of Worcester, a complete and truly distinctive platform of learning from Pre-K through grade 12, I was more than impressed with the enthusiasm and vigor of its wonderful staff.
Principal Adam Cormier and parent Renata Lech were eager to talk about the school’s recent accomplishments and future goals. The school has experienced a resurgence in student population after almost closing recently. Last year a new pastor, the Reverend Richard Polek, assumed the helm of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church, with which the school is affiliated, and there have been many positive changes.
The school will soon be celebrating its 100-year anniversary, a testament to its faculty, students, and staff, office and maintenance alike.
Exciting News at St. Mary’s
The Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten teachers at St. Mary’s Schools will be attending classes this summer to get ready for the new early childhood program that will begin in these classrooms in September. This program, Tools of the Mind, “is a research based early childhood program that builds strong foundations for school success by promoting intentional and self-regulated learning in preschool and kindergarten aged children.” It is learning through play. We are all so excited to begin the trainings and implementation in the classrooms for the students. Parents, families, and students will love this program. Please go on the Tools of the Mind website http://www.toolsofthemind.org for more information. You may also click on the links below to preview some information. Please call 508-753-1170 to register or go to www.stmarysworcester.org Our PreK program rate for 5 days a week is $25.00 per day.
St. Mary’s Students Oliwia Furman, Julia Giguere, Michael Lambert, Joseph Lambert, Mikayla Lozada, Francisco Mandel, Rose Nagelschmidt, Rhianna-Lynn Parent, Veronica Prytko, Tyler Quist and Brittany Watson were confirmed by Bishop Robert McManus at St. Paul’s Cathedral on Sunday. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit strengthen them all, making them witness of Christ’s love. May they always live by their faith with joy. May God bless them all.
We would like to sincerely thank Lisa Allen of Oxford who recently held
a book drive in memory of her mother, Loretta Karpowicz Jason. The
books from this drive were given to the students in the Pre-K and
Kindergarten classes at St. Mary’s Schools in Worcester. Each student
was able to bring 2 books home to keep. The remaining books were
put into the classroom libraries. Thank you for all your hard work, Ms.
Allen. We will keep your Mom in our prayers.
