Former US Ambassador to Vatican Ray Flynn Supports #SaveMarian Effort

FRAMINGHAM – Raymond Flynn, former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See and former Boston Mayor, last night,April 15,  conveyed his support for the effort to keep Marian High School in operation.

“I visited Marian High School just three months ago, met many of its students and was thoroughly impressed by their demeanor and aspirations” said Flynn.”The school has a long history of instilling values of character, leadership and faith in its diverse base of students. I fully support Save Marian’s efforts to keep the school in operation. Schools like Marian assure the longevity and vibrancy of the Catholic faith.”

Marian is a small, private Catholic high school, that has a close-knit community, and has been in existence for more than 60 years.

Christa Corrigan McAuliffe, heroic astronaut and teacher; Congressman Jim Moran; and Boston College football star and Super Bowl champion Peter Cronan, are among the 7,000 alumni of the school who have positively impacted our world, said Save Marian organizers.

On April 3, the president of the school announced that the Marian High School board of trustees voted to close the school due to declining enrollment and fiscal challenges.

Marian is the only co-ed parochial high school between Brighton and Shrewsbury, and closing it would leave a vast void, according to the #SaveMarian team.

The next Save Marian committee meeting is tomorrow, April 17 at 7:30 p.m. at the Framingham Elks Lodge at 450 Union Avenue.
