The Second Announcements

The Second Announcements

On May 9 Fr. Tom Dunne made two more announcements concerning the 2013-2014 pastoral year. They appeared in the province newsletter.

Fr. Gerard Ravasco, a member of the North Philippines Province and a veteran missionary (Cambodia), has arrived in our province to serve the Filipino population of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Surrey, B.C., for a period of 3 years.

George Hebert has been appointed principal of Archbishop Shaw HS in Marrero, La., with the approval of the Office of Catholic Schools of the New Orleans Archdiocese.  Mr. Hebert is an alumnus of Shaw (1985) and has been a public school principal in nearby Lafitte.

Mr. Hebert will replace Fr. Lou Konopelski, Shaw's principal for the last 5 years.  Fr. Dunne noted the school's progress under his leadership in "academic offerings, instructional processes, and teacher formation" as well as its re-accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the development of strategic plan.

There was no word about Fr. Lou's next assignment.  This blogger has an intuition but knows nothing official--or even rumored!
