Catholic Schools Encouraged To Stand Up And Pray To #SaveMarian on Tuesday

FRAMINGHAM – Catholic school students across the Commonwealth are encouraged to stand up and join Marian High students in their fight to save their high school on Tuesday, May 1 in a moment of prayer.

On Tuesday, May 1 at 10 a.m., all Catholic school students are encouraged to stand up and prayer for 15 minutes for Marian High.

The idea came from Janine Sistrand of Framingham, who has a son who is a senior at Marian High, and a daughter, who is a graduate from the Union Avenue school.

Stand Up in Prayer For Marian is just one more effort by parents and students to keep the high school open beyond June 2018.

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

Organizers of the #SaveMarian movement now say they have about three dozen students interested in the freshman class for 2018-19.

Last Monday, the Committee for Prosperity of Marian High School, presented a plan to the to the Catholic Schools Office of the Archdiocese to keep Marian open. A steering committee of the Archdiocese is expected to review the plan on Wednesday.
