Pro-Abortionist as President of Don Bosco Rey High School

 Today, Nov. 29th, pro-abortionist Mark Shriver takes over as the President of Don Bosco Christo Rey High School in Takoma Park, MD.

Now, it isn't as though he is some unknown person, who happens to support abortion.  He is very well know.  He was a Maryland State Delegate from 1995 to 2003.  Ran against US Rep. Connie Morella of the 8th Congressional District.  (Think I got the district number correct.)

In 2011, I reported that he was in on the White Mass Honorary Committee.  If you don't know, the White Mass is held for those with disabilities.   

Now, Don Bosco Christo Rey High School is under the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Washington.  In fact, the Catholic Standard regularly touts and promotes the school.   

So the question is "Why?"  My guess is that in part, he has name recognition and would probably be able to generate big bucks for the school. 

The story about him taking over as President of the school, was reported in the Bethesda Beat

CUA Celebrates Painting of George Floyd as Jesus Christ

Here is the story, reported by Mary Margaret Olohan

Paintings depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ hang in both The Catholic University of America’s campus ministry office and its law school, The Daily Signal has learned. 

Catholic University appeared to shrug off responsibility for the painting Monday, telling The Daily Signal that artist Kelly Latimore’s painting “Mama” depicts “the Virgin Mary supporting the body of the dead Christ”—although the artist has indicated repeatedly that his painting depicts both Floyd and Jesus. 

“You can identify Jesus by the marks in the halo,” said Karna Lozoya, vice president for university communications. Lozoya would not further address the matter with The Daily Signal. 

“The icon has no place at The Catholic University of America; it is blasphemous and an offense to the Catholic faith, but it is not surprising at all that it was put there,” a junior at Catholic University told The Daily Signal in an email. “It is just another symptom of the liberalization and secularization of our campus.” 

“There are many students, faculty, and staff who are concerned about this, but there is nothing we can do,” added the student, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of reprisal from the university administration. “And if we sound the alarm, we will be labeled racists.”

Annual Appeal 2021 Update


The financial goal for the 2021 Annual Appeal was $11.9 million.  The 2020 Annual Appeal brought in $10.4 million from over 33,000 donors. 

 As of this writing, the Appeal has received just over $9.84 million from just under 20,000 donors.  

This means that not only has the Archdiocese not only fallen short by over $2 million but also there were over 33% fewer donors.

Vax Mandatory for Arch of Washington Employees?


The word that I have heard is that the Archdiocese of Washington is asking all employees to report their vax status.  This is in preparation for possible mandate by the Biden Administration.

At this time, I have not heard if they are pushing out those who refuse.
