Students, Parents Holds Vigil to #SaveMarian

FRAMINGHAM – Members of the Marian High School community gathered for the #SaveMarian vigil in the St. Stephen Parish parking lot last night, April 26.

The vigil included prayers on the rosary, signs asking for community members to help save the school and the lighting of prayer candles. Once participants had finished praying on the rosary, the group walked to Marian to pray at the statue out front.

According to Mary Connaughton, Chair of the Committee for Prosperity of Marian High School, the vigil was a way to heal and to remain hopeful for the school’s future.

Connaughton is a mother of two students at Marian High. She believes that what matters the most in this situation is the students.

“What ever happens, we hope that they come out okay,” she said.
