Tonawanda News — “Tuition at Duffy was $70,” Dennis recalled. “Quite a difference from Catholic high schools today.”
The fight’s not over as the parish has sent a letter to the the Holy See asking that the schools which have filed an appeal to the Roman Curia be allowed to continue until the decision is made. By the way, the Roman Curia, according to Wikipedia, is the central governing body through which the pope conducts the business of the entire Catholic Church. (Aren’t you glad you asked?)
An aside, Nancy Holtz, long time third-grade teacher at St. Francis and a committed fighter against the diocese’s ruling, reported that her St. Francis School sign has been “taken down” — actually stolen. She lives off Parker Boulevard in the Town.
On a much more pleasant note, congratulations are in order for the Historical Society of the Tonawandas which has purchased a new resource center, the former Professional Building at Seymour and Broad streets in Tonawanda. Kudos to all who were part of this wonderful addition to the society.
