Welcome to Our Parish

One Parish. One School. One Faith Community.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the hiring of a new principal for Saint Michael School.  Mark Rocha comes to us with a background as an English teacher, a college president and a lifelong Catholic.  Mark does not like to hype his credentials, so I will do that for him.  He holds a Doctorate in English Literature and is a Fulbright Scholar.  He is also a very down to earth and humble man.

Most recently, Mark has been the Senior Vice President of Cardenio Consulting, a firm retained by the Boston Catholic Schools Office to assist and support our schools.  Mark is relocating from New York City to Lowell and will give us his full attention.

I am also pleased to announce that I have hired Mary Fran Chisholm to assist Mark with her extensive knowledge of Lowell and our school.  Mary Fran will be visible often, but probably not daily, at the school to support and encourage our students and the student body growth.

One of their first tasks will be to complete the hiring of the 2 teachers and 2 aids that we need to fully staff the school for this coming year.  There is already good progress on this task, but nothing that can be reported at this time.

I am also incredibly happy to announce that the cafeteria staff of Holly, Bev and Kim will be back with us in September for a newly revamped hot lunch program.

Mark will be scheduling several “Meet and Greets” for the parents and guardians to listen and learn of concerns and priorities.  The dates and times will be sent out shortly.

Celebrate The Year of the Eucharist

The real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist will be celebrated across the world from June 14 (the 2020 Feast of Corpus Christi) to June 2022, uniting all Catholics as one body of Christ. Join with family and friends in prayer, promotion and participation...

Each day commit to praying an additional 15 minutes, including Mass, Adoration, grace before meals and bedtime prayer. Share your faith in the true presence of the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist by giving witness by talking to others about your beliefs.

Rooted in our sacramental  celebrations of the Eucharist, we seek to shape our future in a positive way through our parish school, religious education, youth ministry programs and numerous Christian services.  While maintaining a strong sense of Catholic tradition, we look for ways to revitalize our Christian values through more openness to God's word and our gospel call to love God and neighbor.  Trusting in the Holy Spirit, we seek new ways of being a church for members, active or not, as well as reaching out to the wider community.
