Letter from Superintendent of Catholic Schools

June 18, 2020

Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Adam Dufault has shared a letter to our parents of what our hopes and plans look like at the moment for school opening in the fall. Be assured of our concern for the health and safety of everyone in the school buildings. Of course, we need to be flexible as we receive guidance from the State Health and Education Departments, but our greatest desire is to rejoin in community with one another.


Re-Opening Letter for Parents 06.16.20


Mrs. Mummey and Mr. Watson also have a letter to share specific to our school.

The Return Plan

May 20, 2020

On May 30 & 31, we will begin offering again our 4 weekend public Masses at St. Francis! Thanks be to God! We have missed seeing you, our parish family, and can’t wait to offer the Eucharist to you again, and to celebrate and live our faith together as a community. Below are attached documents with some guidelines that we’re implementing and a letter from Bishop Brennan. Please carefully read these documents as you discern joining us on our opening weekend.

Dear St. Francis de Sales Community,
As you know last weekend I spoke about the coronavirus/COVID-19 and the steps we are taking to help prevent the spread of this virus. We have been monitoring the situation, the statements made today by our state’s Governor, and we have been in contact with the Bishop and his administrative offices. 


Welcome from Our Principal

December 12, 2019

Hello to our families,




  Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year. We are so excited to welcome our new families to our school. You will become a part of a wonderful community that truly supports each other. We will encounter Christ together. Our students will have opportunities to know Our Lord in our minds but also to feel Our Lord in our hearts. We will encounter Christ in our work, our service, our prayer, our worship, our studies, and our friendships. We are experiencing exponential growth in our parish and school. This is so very exciting. Through renovations, we have added 4 new classrooms, a media center, a new cafeteria, a larger art room, and a larger music room. Our gymnasium has received a beautiful makeover. Thank you to all who have made this possible. It has been done out of love for our school, our families, our staff and of course our students. It is a wonderful time to be a part of St. Francis de Sales School and parish.


Many Blessings,

Sally Mummey
