Dear Parishioners, 

It is with great joy and excitement that I welcome Ms. Margaret Beale as the new Principal of our beloved Immaculata Catholic School! Ms. Beale comes to Immaculata after eight years at Asheville Catholic School, during which time she was an integral part of taking a struggling school, and helping to transform it into a growing and vibrant Catholic institution. The Principal Search Committee was very impressed with Ms. Beale’s accomplishments, her positive and uplifting attitude, and her strong work ethic.

Ms. Beale lives her life on a strong foundation in the Catholic faith, and is focused on promoting and maintaining positive, constructive relationships with parents, teachers, alumni, and our parish, to help build a strong school and parish community.

Ms. Beale has high expectations of herself, and her students and teachers, but guides students towards those high goals with a disposition of encouragement and love. I have every confidence that she will teach solid Catholic moral ideals to our children, instill leadership skills, and prepare our students academically, to live their lives in the fullness to which God calls them.

As your Pastor, I am looking forward to Ms. Beale bringing a new energy and enthusiasm to Immaculata Catholic School, but she needs your prayers, and your energy and enthusiasm, too. Now is a great time to get involved at Immaculata, so I encourage you to see me or Ms. Beale about energizing our PTO and parent involvement, and in sharing the value of a Catholic education with our community.

I also encourage you to enroll your children at Immaculata, if you have not done so yet. At the very soul of an Immaculata education is the education of the soul. Welcome, Ms. Margaret Beale, as our new Principal!

Fr. Cook
