BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A new superintendent of Catholic schools for the Diocese of Buffalo was appointed Saturday by Bishop Richard J. Malone.
Native of Rochester, national consultant with William H. Sadlier Publishers, assistant college professor at Manhattan College, and author Sister Carol Cimino, will take over the duties of Dr. Rosemary Henry.
"This is a wonderful way to begin Catholic Schools Week," Bishop Malone said. "Sister Carol's credentials are impeccable. She brings to our Catholic schools a breadth of experience that will play an important role as we continue to focus on the faith formation and high academic achievement of our students. She has a deep commitment to the mission of Catholic schools, and knows and understands the importance of Catholic identity."

"The strength of our schools is their Catholic identity, and I pledge to work to maintain and enhance our Catholic identity, so that our schools will remain true gifts to the Church," Sister Carol said. "I cannot be more proud to be able to serve the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Buffalo. I look forward to strengthening these schools in partnership with pastors, principals and parents, and I believe that, in working with the community, we can bring the Catholic schools to a whole new level."
