YOUNGSTOWN, OH……Bishop George V. Murry, S.J., Bishop of Youngstown, announced that 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 (1.) for a new school building and (2.) for 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. 

As part of this decision, the Bishop consulted with the executive committees of both Ursuline High School and Cardinal Mooney High School Board of Directors about the possibility of a merger of the two schools.  Both executive committees did not think that a merger was a viable option.  The five-member committee also did not support a merger of the two schools.

Dr. Nicholas Wolsonovich, Diocesan Superintendent of Catholic Schools, stated that Fr. Gerald DeLucia, president of Cardinal Mooney High School, and its Board of Directors are encouraged by the Bishop’s decision and will begin moving forward enthusiastically to carry out his directives.  The President and Board will develop an overall plan for the new building, including a funding plan and an endowment fund.
