Unified Green Bay school system plan delayed

No schools to close for 2006-07 unless parishes ask

By Tony Staley
Compass Editor

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.

In addition, Bp. Zubik said, none of the 13 Green Bay area Catholic schools will close or be consolidated this next school year unless the pastor and parish leaders request it for their school.

Work will continue on forming a single school system to take effect no sooner than fall 2007. Efforts also will begin to expand the vision of Catholic education to include Catholic day schools, religious education for public school students and adult education, Bp. Zubik said.   Full story ...

STURGEON BAY -- More than 50 people of all ages, including families with toddlers, took part in a candlelight vigil and walk Friday evening, Jan. 20, to commemorate the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion on demand.

Door County Right to Life, a local chapter of Wisconsin Right to Life, hosted the event, which began with prayer at the Door County Courthouse in Sturgeon Bay.

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 ...
