SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Catholic families urging Bishop Mitchell Rozanski to rebuild Cathedral high school held a vigil Sunday afternoon in front of the tornado-damaged building.
The new school advocates held their first Sunday afternoon vigil following their gatherings during a half dozen Sunday evenings.
Those who carried placards during their 30-minute vigil told 22News many of them are neighbors in the East Forest Park neighborhood.
Frank Ryan of Springfield said, “This is not just about parochial education or the Catholic faith. Cathedral is important to the people of the city, it is a legacy of fine education.”
This was the weekend when Bishop Rozanski began give-and-take workshops with the Catholic community that could determine the future of Cathedral High School.
