Parents Club Mission

The Marian Catholic Parents Club provides volunteer and financial support to the school community through social, academic, faith, and recruitment activities. We provide social opportunities for Marian Catholic Parents to form friendships and build a strong community. The Parents Club is proud of its fifty-plus year tradition of working together with the Marian Catholic faculty, families, and students.

President's Welcome

On behalf of the Marian Catholic Parents Club, we would like to welcome all of you to the 2020-2021 school year. The Marian Catholic Parents Club has maintained the proud tradition of friendship and support of the Marian Catholic High School faculty, students, and community.

As Parents Club continues to add more opportunities and events for our families and students, we welcome new ideas from you for additional events and participation in facilitating them. We extend an invitation to you to build friendships and community with other Marian Catholic families by attending events that are already being planned by Parents Club.

Please join us at one of our General Assembly Meetings to learn more about Parents Club and Volunteer Opportunities at Marian Catholic. This is also an opportunity to enjoy a special meet and greet with President Vince Krydynski and Principal Steve Tortorello.

Fall General Assembly Meeting - Tuesday, October 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library
Spring General Assembly Meeting - Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library
