Pauline McNicol, Administrative Assistant

Hi! I’m Pauline McNicol. I’ve been the parish secretary since March 1, 1982. I was hired as secretary for St. Patrick Church and a few years later also took on the secretarial duties at St. Raphael Church. I’ve been very fortunate to have a job I love. It’s been an interesting journey to say the least.

I was born and raised in North Adams, née Foucher, attended Holy Family and Notre Dame elementary schools. I grew up speaking French, but have lost most of it. I graduated from St. Joseph’s High School with the class of ’66. I lived in Williamstown from 1970 through 1992, and now live back in North Adams.

I have been blessed with three sons, Alex, Eric and Bill; and they have blessed me with 5 granddaughters, Annalyse, Monica, Maggie, Molly and Michaela; and 4 grandsons, Jacob, James, Matthew and William.

I like to travel and visit my family, hang out with friends, and I like reading and sewing.

In the 32+ years I’ve worked here, I have met many wonderful people. Several pastors have come and moved on. God has blessed me with many new friendships within my parish family over the years ~ and, God willing, many more to come!
