Local Catholic church officials are reacting to today's announcement that Pope Benedict XVI will resign at the end of the month.
In a statement, Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis Schnurr writes:
“In announcing his resignation, Pope Benedict XVI has acted humbly and unselfishly for the good of the Church. That same spirit has characterized his entire life of service.
With students about to head back to classes, the Cincinnati Archdiocese is laying out its vision for the future.
This is the first-ever unified education plan for the 114-school diocese.
Superintendent Jim Rigg says preserving the Catholic identity is a top priority.
