FRAMINGHAM – A #SaveMarian vigil is planned for Thursday, April 26 in the St. Stephen Parish parking lot in downtown Framingham.

Parents have already pledged $131,200 to keep the co-ed Catholic High School on Union Avenue open.

The pledge payments would go to the operational fund of the school. and show the Marian Board of Trustees that parents are committed to keeping the school open and in operation.

Earlier this month, Marian Trustees voted to close the school, that has been opens for more than six decades, after the Presidents announced only 16 freshmen were enrolled for the 2018-19 school year.

Representative Chris Walsh said “for more than five decades Marian High School has offered residents of the Framingham area an option for a top quality education for their children. I support the mission of the “Save Marian” organization and the parents, students, alumni and community leaders working to keep the school open.”
Father Cornell of St. Cecelia Parish in Ashland joined the group of priests, who have signed a letter to Cardinal O’Malley in support of the Save Marian effort.
