About our Pastoral Associate

Pastoral Associate
Mary Peterson has a Master’s Degree in Ministry from St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA., and has decades of experience in pastoral ministry, including nearly 10 years as a Pastoral Associate. She joined Our Lady of Fatima as Pastoral Associate on December 8, 2012, to assist in all aspects of parish life. This will include supporting and enhancing our current ministries; assisting in creating a Youth Ministry team; reaching out to Catholics in Sudbury through evangelization; and helping the parish prepare for our Pastoral Planning journey, which will lead us to an increasingly close collaboration with St. Anselm’s in Sudbury and St. Bridget’s in Maynard.

Mary has two daughters. Theresa is a graduate student in International Education at George Washington University, and Katie lives in South Africa, where she is Chief Operating Officer for a marine conservation organization. Mary commutes to Sudbury from her home in Winthrop but says she doesn’t mind the drive! She is delighted to be part of our parish journey of faith and to be able to learn, support, and have fun with the members of our parish.
