2018 Madeleine Auction Honorary Chairs: Marilyn & John Faherty

The Faherty FamilyMarilyn and John Faherty raised their big Catholic family during the disco era. When they headed out on vacation with their six children, they did so in a baby blue Volkswagen bus with the kids wearing matching T-shirts with a peace symbol on the front, and bell-bottom pants.

Throughout their lives and adventures, their Catholic faith was at the core and The Madeleine community a heavy component in their life. Marilyn and John have been parishioners at The Madeleine for more than 40 years. They have participated in nearly every sacrament right here at the church.

John served on the Pastoral Council for 20 years including during the Parish Hall Fundraising. Four of their children graduated from The Madeleine. They were athletic directors for two years and hosted a large dance party fundraiser at a time when CYO was struggling.

Marilyn was a clipboard-carrying track coach with hundreds of students on The Madeleine CYO team. John coached basketball for 19 years, five of them at The Madeleine where he wore his velour sweatsuit to games, much to the dismay of his youngest daughter Meghan.

Their parish participation remains steadfast. Marilyn enjoys her weekly prayer group with Sister Sharon, organized The Madeleine Uncorked event for three years, participates in the Prison Ministry, writing letters to prison inmates, and participates in the Lenten Faith sharing groups each year. Marilyn has served on the Seminary Tea Committee for a lifetime and last year chaired the enormous event that raises money for Seminarian education.

They have attended more than their share of graduations at The Madeleine. In addition their own children, five of their grandchildren have attended The Madeleine School. Truly a multi-generational story!

Please join us at the 2018 Madeleine Auction as we honor and thank John and Marilyn for their service to our community, and their commitment to Catholic education.
