Peabody, MA – Brother Thomas Zoppo’s successful leadership at Bishop Fenwick High School, an archdiocesan school in Peabody, MA, has prompted Cardinal Seán O’Malley to engage his school community in a new venture to enhance and ensure the vitality and viability of Catholic education on Boston’s North Shore.

On August 1st, it was formally announced that Bishop Fenwick would assume sponsorship of St. Mary of the Annunciation School, which had been a shared ministry of two parishes located several miles from the Fenwick campus. As a consequence of this innovative collaboration, Brother Thomas is now the Head of School for an entity that encompasses a Pre-K through Grade 12 clientele! Success to all involved in this bold move to ensure a strong future for the 740 youngsters involved.
