Cardinal Seán O’Malley visited St. Mary’s High School Monday to recognize the contributions of the Mosakowski Family Foundation to Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Boston, particularly at St. Mary’s.
Less than four months after committing to a gift of $1 million in scholarships and aid for St. Mary’s students, Bill and Jane Mosakowski have made another significant contribution.
The Mosakowskis have given a $1,000 grant to every St. Mary’s freshman who came from St. Pius V School in Lynn, Sacred Heart School in Lynn and St. John the Baptist School in Peabody. There are 38 students who have received the grant, representing one-third of the freshman class.
“The Mosakowskis’ unwavering support of Catholic education cannot be overstated,” said St. Mary’s Head of School Dr. Raymond A. Bastarache. “We are extremely grateful for their commitment to our school and our students.”
In June, the Mosakowskis announced the establishment of the Rev. Monsignor Paul V. Garrity Scholarship Fund at St. Mary’s, pledging $100,000 a year for 10 years for scholarships and aid in the name of the former pastor, who served St. Mary’s Parish and the school from 1992-2010. He is currently the pastor at St. Catherine of Siena in Norwood.
