Boston archdiocese names temporary head of schools
Aug. 28, 2013
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Archdiocese has appointed the former superintendent of schools at a New Hampshire diocese as its temporary head of schools.
Mary Moran succeeds Mary Grassa O'Neill, who resigned last month after leading the system for five years.
Moran joined the archdiocese last year as special projects manager. Before that, she worked beginning in 2006 as superintendent of schools in the Diocese of Manchester.
She's previously worked as a teacher and principal at schools in Massachusetts and Maine.
In a statement, Moran said the ultimate goal in Catholic school is to model the life of Christ by building "communities of faith, belonging, learning, challenge and service."
Moran takes over a system with 41,000 students.
