Bishop George V. Murry, S.J., has appointed Ms. Mary Fiala as Acting Superintendent of
Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Youngstown, effective immediately.

Ms. Fiala joined the diocesan staff in 2011as Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and
Instruction. She had been Principal at St. Joan of Arc School, Canton, from 1999-2011
and at SS. Philip and James School, Canal Fulton, from 1991-1999. Prior to being named
principal, she was a classroom teacher at St. Paul School, North Canton, from 1979-1991.
Ms. Fiala earned a bachelor of science degree in education and a master’s of science in
elementary administration from the University of Akron.

In making the appointment, Bishop Murry stated that “I am very grateful to Ms. Fiala for
assuming these new responsibilities. She brings to the superintendent’s position many
years of experience in Catholic school administration and I look forward to continuing to
work with her.”

A national search for a new superintendent will begin later this month.
