Unified Green Bay school system plan delayed
No schools to close for 2006-07 unless parishes ask
By Tony Staley
There will not be a unified school system for Green Bay area Catholic schools for the 2006-07 school year, Bp. David Zubik said Jan. 27 at a press conference.

Greg Bojko, president of Door County Right to Life, reminded the group that the purpose of the silent walk was to pray for all those involved in abortion.
"This includes the health care workers who believe they are helping mankind, the mothers who are considering abortion, and those mothers who have had an abortion and are now suffering from the effects," Bojko said. Full story ...
