“I love being able to pray with my students and share my faith with them!” -Mrs. Healy

Mrs. Mary Lou Healy has been a teacher at Cathedral for 10 years; however, she has been part of the Cathedral Community for much longer than that. Her five children all graduated from the School of the Cathedral. Mrs. Healy says, “When I was in high school at NDP, I noticed that the best students came from Cathedral. As soon as we had our first child, I knew we would send her to Cathedral.”

Mrs. Healy teaches Cathedral Middle School Math and Religion courses. She is very passionate about teaching both of these subjects. She says that we encounter math every day, sometimes without realizing it. She believes that, in addition to our faith, a strong foundation in math helps us navigate through our lives. Outside of school, Mrs. Healy loves to dance and gets a lot of happiness from her Zumba classes.

She finds it hard saying goodbye to her 8th graders at Graduation in June, but she knows that they are ready to move on and become young adults. A highlight for her is seeing them when they come back to visit on their days off!

When we asked Mrs. Healy to give her students a piece of sage advice, she emphasized, “Persevere and never settle for less than your best in anything you do!”

As a special note, earlier this year at the Middle School Prayer Breakfast, the Middle School teachers were inducted into either the Stars or the Stripes spirit team. Mrs. Healy was inducted into Stripes, just like all of her children! Photos of her five children during their time at Cathedral are above.

Thank you, Mrs. Healy! Our community is grateful for your love and dedication to our Middle School students and to this parish!
