The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is pleased to announce that we have successfully completed our search for a new Principal of Holy Name High School. Effective July 1, 2014 Shelbrey Blanc â€™95 will become the new principal of Holy Name. Mrs. Blanc is currently the Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Teacher Supervision at Holy Name, a position she has held since 2009. She will become the first female lay principal in Holy Nameâ€™s history.
Wednesday the 5th of March will be Ash Wednesday, a day that begins a very special time in the life of our Church. Lent means many things to people, not least of which is the beginning of a spiritual journey leading us to the Feast of Easter Sunday--Jesus Christ is Risen from the dead.
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis suggested the Catholic Church could tolerate some types of nonmarital civil unions as a practical measure to guarantee property rights and health care. He also said the church would not change its teaching against artificial birth control but should take care to apply it with "much mercy."
Pope Francis' words appeared in an interview published March 5 in the Italian daily Corriere della Sera.
