      Recently, Bishop McManus asked the priests and laity of the diocese to pray for the immigrant community on Pentecost weekend. It is very fitting because on Pentecost we celebrate the birthday of the Church. It is not race, color of skin, or place of origin that makes the Church, but it is the Holy Spirit – the source of unity and human solidarity.

      Diocesan High Schools moving to collaborative leadership model
      The Catholic Schools Office has announced that it is seeking to fill a new position in the Diocese of Worcester, Associate Superintendent of Secondary Schools. The person will work directly with the three Central Catholic High Schools in the Diocese, namely Holy Name, St. Bernard, and St. Peter-Marian, eliminating the need for a separate headmaster or president. The goal of the new position is to foster a more system-wide approach to diocesan Catholic secondary education in order to optimize performance across the three secondary schools while simultaneously improving operational efficiency. While this new position oversees operations at all three schools, this does not involve a merger of the schools. The three schools will continue to operate with individual principals and staff, as well as maintain a niche character which reflects the charisms of their founding religious communities, including the Sisters of St. Anne, the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Sisters of Mercy, and the Presentation Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
