Cathy and Frank Belatti

Frank and Cathy Belatti have been honored with the highest honor Marist School bestows.

The St. Peter Chanel Award, named for the saint who sacrificed his life to his missionary work, is given annually in recognition of individuals whose support and leadership have advanced the mission of Marist School. The Belattis received the award for 2013-14.

For the past 30 years, the Belattis’ contributions have helped to shape Marist School. They were instrumental in the development of the Marist Way program, a spirituality curriculum targeted to all members of the school community, as well as the growth of Marist’s community service program.

Cathy Belatti, a longtime Habitat for Humanity volunteer, co-founded Marist Women Build, the first chapter of its kind nationally, and was a founding member and past chair of Habitat for Humanity International’s Women Build Steering Council. Cathy sits on Marist School’s Board of Trustees, and together she and Frank Belatti chair the school’s $35 million capital campaign.
