Bishop will revisit decision on keeping Mooney in city


Bishop George V. Murry’s decision to keep Cardinal Mooney High School in the city isn’t a done deal.

A Wednesday statement from the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown says that new information about the costs of asbestos remediation to the school building has prompted the bishop to review his June 4 decision to keep Mooney on Erie Street.

Bishop Murry has appointed a committee to review information regarding the school renovation. The committee includes a parent, a pastor and people with expertise in Catholic school mission, education, finance and building construction.

If they do keep it in the city, use the new building as an opportunity to tear down a whole bunch of blight around there.

Turn it into a nice campus like setting that is visible from Market St. and/or South Avenue.

Real story here is the Bishop and the Diocese caught a lot of heat from the heavy hitter donors to Mooney and to the Parishes within the Diocese. Lots of people threatened to stop contributing and to pull their kids from catholic schools. To use the excuse that you didn't know the cost of the asbestos remediation is a joke. How could you not know the cost of fixing the school when deciding to keep it there? Just tell it like it is already.....the school and Diocese quickly learned how much $ they would no longer receive if they keep the Mooney there.

And you wonder why the Catholic Church's leadership has ZERO credibility?

I don't see why all the threats of pulling the kids. They enrolled when there was no plan to move so why because the school may stay would they leave? Same with the fatcat donors.
That said, close Chaney and move those to East. YCS needs only one high school now. Chaney is not what it once was anyway, that tradition is gone. Mooney can move in, the redecorating is done and it's still in the city, on a safer side of town. Problem solved.

this story is baloney. does the bishop know that lying is a sin? influential alumni got to him. they want their alma mater moved to a "better" area. they think we're stupid.
