Cathedral High School Supporters Announce Forum
Supporters of the only Catholic high school in Springfield, Massachusetts are meeting this evening to urge the new bishop of western Massachusetts to rebuild the tornado-damaged school.
The forum is aimed at demonstrating to recently installed Bishop Mitchell Rozanski that Cathedral High School is part of the fabric of the region’s Catholic community and the city’s East Forest Park neighborhood. Rozanski, early this month ordered a new study to determine Cathedral’s future, seemingly reneging on a pledge made by his predecessor to rebuild the school that was left in ruins by the 2011 tornado. Cathedral parent and Springfield City Councilor Tim Rooke is looking for answers.
"Lines of communication be open, the dialog be sincere, and real solutions and real answers be given to the parents, the students and alumnae."
No official from the diocese is expected to attend the forum.
