URGENT: Mooney will not move; too soon to talk merger

Bishop George V. Murry says the Mooney campaign failed to raise enough to move forward with plans for a new building.

Murry said the campaign failed to raise the interim $23 million goal.

The total for the project is $34 million, and $14 million was raised toward the goal.

The Rev. Gerald DeLucia, president of Cardinal Mooney High School, says there haven't been safety issues at the school.

"i can't say enough about Youngstown's concern, care and watchfulness for Cardinal Mooney," he said.

The bishop says it's premature to talk about merging Mooney and Ursuline high schools.

Nick Wolsonovich, superintendent of the Diocese of Youngstown Schools, says everyone is invited to participate in the process moving forward in deciding what's next for Cardinal Mooney.
