Rev. Michael J. Russo Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church

This second year as Chancellor has been another year of good and exciting activity for the School. Even with efforts to be at the School once a week and to attend various sporting and other extra-curricular activities of the students, much of a Chancellor’s role at Catholic Schools is “behind the scenes” – making sure that diocesan protocol and documents, and communication and approval from the Board of Pastors, is “up and running” smoothly. This is particularly the case now at STM with the implementation of the Master Site Plan – a series of construction projects that will occur over the next years. The new softball field, the tennis courts, the expanded parking lot are all a reality because of the “behind the scenes” work in getting such projects approved and implemented. And, there is much more on deck in the months to follow. It’s all good!

Another important decision this past year was going to the President/Principal leadership model for next academic year. This was highly recommended to me by the Diocesan Superintendant of Schools, Mrs. Anna Larriviere. This new model will help run the school smoothly and efficiently, particularly with the added responsibility of overseeing construction. Mr. Richard Lavergne and Mrs. Kelley Leger will make a dynamic duo. The decision was well received by the faculty. In addition to the restructuring of the Administrative Team with the Principal/President model, and the “behind the scenes” work for construction projects, it was important to me to continue efforts to make our Catholic identity strong and our weekly School Masses a priority. A new sound system in the Mall area (which was funded by the Board of Pastors), as well as a new set of statues erected in the Mall (donated by generous parents and friends) helped to serve the above purpose. If you have not been to the school in awhile, stop by to see the difference in the look. As one teacher recently said to me: “I’m looking forward to the future. There are good vibes. God is smiling. The Holy Spirit is moving….” My sentiments exactly! Thanks to all who helped to make this second year so enriching and rewarding for me. It is a great privilege to serve at STM, and a fulfilling part of my ministry as a priest

Endowed gifts are received by the St. Thomas More Catholic High School Foundation. The Foundation receives both restricted and unrestricted gifts of cash and/or stocks. Restricted gifts are generally in the form of donations to a named memorial fund or scholarship. Unrestricted gifts are added to the corpus of the Foundation’s endowment fund. A portion of the interest earned by the endowment fund is returned to the school annually to support such programs as tuition assistance and teacher salaries and benefits. Endowed gifts can be made in memory of or in honor of a loved one.
