Cardinal Mooney High School could still move out of Youngstown

Published: Tue, September 3, 2013 @ 9:55 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Bishop George V. Murry of the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown today said he would agree to move Cardinal Mooney High School to a suitable location in the southern tier of Mahoning County if the results of the financial feasibility study indicate that there is sufficient financial support for a new school building and there would be an endowment fund for scholarships for financially needy students.

This decision was based on the recommendation of the five-member committee which the bishop established to review all of the information concerning Cardinal Mooney — both old information and new.

Merge with Ursuline and Kennedy and move to a central location... in a SAFE area.

The decision has been made, Mooney will be moved.
Fundraising has begun and quite a bit of money has ben committed to building the new school. Muransky, Cene and Handel can confirm how much has been raised, seven figures at this point, they have been organizing to make sure the move will happen. It would be to hard to pass up a deal like they offer. Money has always been the governing factor of who gets listened to in the diocese. Asbestos or not.

Oh.! The mission of the Diocese with respect to Cath. Education in the inner city, that's one of the reasons Ursuline and Mooney cannot be combined. Ursuline will represent that element of the mission statement.

In the end Mooney will be a elite school for the moneyed so that their kids won't have to mix with the riiff raff who haven't received a sports scholarship.

@Agreeley- You are wrong!

You are wrong Cardinal Mooney's goal is not to be an elite school devoid of diversity.
You are incorrect about financing and fundraising as well.
Inuendo and speculation on your part make for a better story then fact.

The only way for Mooney to survive another 5 years, 10 at the latest, was to move. Staying would assure that not enough tuition paying students would be attending to meet the bills, let alone offset the scholarship (?) students.

Simple economics drove the organizing of quite a few alumni who really do care to see the school continue. It has nothing to do with with elite or wealthy - only that fewer and fewer would choose to send their children to the school as it is now and that alone would close the place
