Cathedral Academy at Pompei Leadership Team

Rev. Daniel Caruso, Parish Pastor, Sister Helen Ann Charlebois IHM, Principal, and Lucy Paris, Development Director,

are leading the creation of a model international school in the Roman Catholic tradition.

Father Daniel Caruso

Father Daniel Caruso was inspired to seek the priesthood shortly after his Confirmation by Bishop Thomas Costello at St. Daniel’s Church. When the new Pastor, Reverend Gene Yennock arrived in the parish, teenaged Daniel Caruso became especially aware of the kind and happy church leaders who served as witnesses of the Faith. Observing the work of these model priests led him to Le Moyne College and the St. Mary’s Seminary and University, in Baltimore, Maryland. (St. Mary’s is the oldest Roman Catholic Seminary in the United States.) Reverend Daniel Caruso was ordained on June 4, 1994.  Since 2001, Father Daniel Caruso served as pastor of St. Mary of the Assumption and St. Paul’s Church in Binghamton. In 2011, as the newly appointed pastor of Our Lady of Pompei/St. Peter Church, he has quickly become the beloved parish priest who guides Cathedral Academy at Pompei School.



Sister Helen Ann Charlebois

Sister Helen Ann has been missioned far and wide. She was the principal of Most Holy Rosary in Syracuse and served as the Assistant Superintendent for the Diocese of Syracuse.  Her administrative and teaching experiences have been in rural, urban, and suburban settings, ranging from early childhood through secondary schools.  Places such as Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Baltimore, NYC, Long Island, North Carolina, and Idaho have been blessed with her leadership.  Now we are the fortunate recipients of her gifts!


Lucy Paris


Cathedral Academy at Pompei is both a privilege and joy to be part of. It’s warm and loving atmosphere is coupled with a strenuous, competitive academic curriculum that makes us stand out and be noticed.  The children and people in the building are a constant reminder and example of God’s work every day. CAP represents what our great country stands for and was founded on… the welcoming of hard working immigrants that’s goal is to provide the best opportunities for their children. We couldn’t be more proud that our 3 boys received their elementary education from Pompei . Their success at the high school and college levels and their deep spiritual faith is reflective of those formative years at Pompei. It’s a great place to be…come and visit…you will fall in love!!!
