So as not to encourage confusion in the city of Green Bay, the Green Bay Gazette recently released an article about Holly Rottier’s new position as the Director of Education in the Diocese of Green Bay. Although many Catholic diocesan school systems are led by “superintendants,” Green Bay has organized all education and catechesis under one leader. Although Green Bay is not the only diocese to be organized in this way, it makes an important statement about Catholic education and catechesis. As the article points out, a Catholic school superintendant is different from a public school superintendant in that Catholic schools have much more autonomy compared to public schools in public school systems. According to Rottier, “we are working in all of the schools locally…and trying to make [initiatives at the diocesan level] fit at every school, no matter what those resources are.” She will also be responsible for faith formation of adults as well as children religious education programs. Ideally, this would combine the strengths of both Catholic schools and parish-based religious education programs and promote unity rather than division between the two fields.
