Archdiocese of Cincinnati - PFLAG, "organization's agendas, which clearly violate Church teaching" ................ Overlooking Gay Issues, Overpriced Education, "Terror" .............. In favor of sports and vouchers ?

Dead End

Immoral Political Action Group - REMOVED !

PFLAG Advocacy and Issues

We are posting this information so that we can refer to it in a "snail mail" letter we have been asked to send to 
His Excellency Bishop Binzer.

We are documenting the process by which progressive organizations have spread their agenda across 
the west-side of Cincinnati.

We are documenting how these groups have worked their way into Catholic schools.
We are documenting how these groups have worked their way into Catholic Churches.
We are documenting what happens to families who have the guts to speak up.

Below is a letter that was sent, in 2009, to the principal of Catholic Mother of mercy H.S.
Over a 2 year period, the guidance department at Mercy referred her students to a homosexual scholarship opportunity. The student in the letter below was accompanied by Fr. Eric Bowman and met with, the then Ass. Superintendent, Jan Kennedy. 
Jan Kennedy told Fr. Bowman to his face that the organization above was not objectionable and they would 
"have to agree to disagree" with regard to removing the organization from the guidance bulletin communique.

The Archbishop was kept informed.

Over a 5 year period, between 2010 and 2015, 
Mother of Mercy H.S. has changed principals 
5 times.

Please note: In the letter below, Sister Nancy admits that she and the Ass. Superintendent agree that there is nothing objectionable to the homosexual, advocacy group 
Pflag scholarship.

Please note: In the e-mail below, 
Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Social Action, Director, 
Tony Stieritz writes
"promoting those organizations agendas, 
clearly violates Church teaching"

Also note: This information came to light 1 and a half years after Gabrielle  left Mother of Mercy H.S.

Hi Tony,

I hope your Thanksgiving was a good one.  In catching up with some of my
accumulating emails this morning I came upon this one.

...Could you please advise me as to how to respond to this kind of
communication, or would you in fact like to respond?  You'll notice that
I was cc'd, and that it wasn't sent to me directly.  Fr. Eric Bowman is
also a recipient, and he may in fact have chosen to forward the link to
the Archbishop, who knows?

You were probably having a perfectly good day, so I'm sorry to serve
this up, but I suppose it's far better to know what's out there than

Love to Jess and the boys,

...What this article notes is that IJPC's website listed several
problematic organizations, including Cincinnati NOW and P-FLAG,
promoting those organization's agendas, which clearly violate Church

Mercy Hires a President

Sister Nancy Is Replaced


Mercy H.S. Hosts Terror-Tied Dinner

Asked about it, the school says it was unaware of any such controversies surrounding the group. Nor did it know that the IRS recently revoked the nonprofit status of CAIR’s national office for failing to disclose its foreign funding sources. Or that the Justice Department named the group an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror-financing trial in U.S. history.
She referred questions to the principal, who did not return phone calls.
Washington-based CAIR remains under active investigation by a federal grand jury for allegedly providing material support to Hamas, a federally designated terrorist group responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Israelis and Americans.
The FBI, as a result, has cut off outreach to CAIR and all 30 of its branches in the U.S. – including its Cincinnati chapter....
“Mercy is honored to have been asked to participate and has offered to host the event in Mercy’s cafeteria,” said principal Diane Laake on the school’s website.
She said Muslim and Catholic youths will deliver presentations about the meaning of fasting in both religious traditions.
“They are all about being PC,” complained a Catholic member of the local parish who wished to remain anonymous.
Laake described such events as “vital bridge builders for our students and Mercy families to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of diversity.”
“Part of our mission as Catholic schools is to prepare our young women to live as compassionate, respectful and enlightened global citizens,” she added. “How better to accomplish this than by sharing a meal together as Jesus often did?”

Cancelled !

“I’m glad it’s canceled; it wasn’t a good thing,” said Kelly Jennings, a Mercy parent who lives in Bridgetown, Ohio. “There were a lot of parents who were up in arms about it. It would have really given Mercy a bad name.”
A Catholic member of the local parish who wished to remain anonymous pointed out that the school had no plans to screen CAIR officials as they do parents who enter the school building.
“Parents of the children in the Catholic schools have to be fingerprinted to volunteer in the schools, but they are bringing in people who are associated with CAIR who are presently being investigated by the FBI,” she complained.
Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis Schnurr reportedly didn’t want a terror-tied group at the school, given the complaints and the Aug. 26 event’s proximity to the 9/11 anniversary.
School officials confirm he pulled the plug on the high school dinner due to security concerns. As WND has previously reported, no fewer than 15 CAIR officials have been implicated in terrorism investigations since 9/11.
“The fact that Mercy was co-hosting this Ramadan meal with the Council on American-Islamic Relations specifically had become too great a distraction from the positive intent of building relationships and understanding with our Muslim neighbors,” Mother of Mercy President Kirsten MacDougal wrote in her letter to staff.
“While the archdiocese appreciates our good intentions, there is now some concern for the safety of those who would attend the meal,” she added. “As a result, the archbishop has asked that we cancel our hosting the meal.”

Mother of Mercy H.S.
Announces New Principal


357. Mother of Mercy science teacher accused of sexual abuse

New Principal

The issue isn't necessarily what Seton is doing wrong and Mercy is doing right but more about location. The traditional feeder schools into Seton just are not growing. In fact, they are getting smaller and smaller every year. Williams, Teresa, Dominic, Holy Family, Lawrence, Resurrection, and even Victory are shrinking. I think Antoninus is at least holding steady but I could be wrong.

Vouchers and the ridiculous cost of tuition bring with it an entire host of other issues.

Elder is in the same predicament but draws from a larger area and has more loyal alums so it is a bit safer. However, I still worry Elder will be Roger Bacon and Purcell eventually but hope it does not happen in my lifetime.

New leadership on the way

Seton just hired Mercy's principal Karen White. She is a Seton grad and is probably very excited to bring what she's learned while at Mercy. Seton will also be going to the same leadership model Mercy currently has, which is a principal and a president. Seton got the jump in Mercy when the open enrollment started, but Mercy came back, and then some. Now it's up the Seton to catch up. I believe they will. The good thing is that it makes both schools better.

A volleyball coach cutting players is not why Mercy has 140 freshman and Seton has <100 b="">
This is what I was getting at.

New Principal

Yesterday was great timing for a Seton vs. Mercy contest. Seton must not be hurting as bad as you say, they have a pretty good softball team. Can't say the same for Mercy. 

May 6
Seton 10, Mercy 0

Does this foreshadow a merger of the two schools in your opinion? With the Archdiocese being in the school closing business these days they'll probably be all over this before long.

I don't think so in the near future at least. While neither aren't exactly turning students away both appear to be holding their own on enrollment. Roger Bacon is actually one of McAuleys biggest competitors. RB's tuition is only $8600 with a lot of scholarship money given away. A lot of girls from my kids grade school ended up there purely for financial reasons. They lose a few girls to Ursuline and MND but get a solid draw from Ignatius and St James.

Ridiculous or not, bringing that incident into the discussion from the beginning seems like sour grapes to me.

From what I heard, the previous coach was trying to send a message that things were going to be different in the program. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, but he clearly was trying to change the culture and this was his plan to do so. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your position on him) for Seton, the coach left after one season and his "plan" was cut short. But they've been mediocre at best in volleyball over there for some time.
Seton High School has announced Yoon Ha has been hired as the new head varsity volleyball coach.

Ha has been a head varsity coach since 1995. During this time he has won two state championships-2010 with the Fenwick girls varsity team and 2013 with the Fenwick boys varsity team. Ha comes to Seton from Centerville High School where he was the girls’ head volleyball coach. He has a career record of 329 wins and 165 losses, and is also a current coach at Cincinnati Classics Club Team.

A huge deal when you consider nearly all of the girls have not participated in a track event until they were in high school. Also the JV team also won too. Congrats to all of them.
That's a huge achievement for that program. They have done a good job getting athletes from other sports to fill in their roster weaknesses. Hopefully with the success they have had the last couple of seasons more girls will want to be a part of the future success.
