Bishop Joseph E. Strickland has announced that Kathy Shieldes Harry, former principal of St. Gregory Cathedral School in Tyler, will be the new head of Catholic Charities of East Texas, beginning June 1.
“Kathy is a lifelong Catholic and educator in both public and Catholic schools in the Tyler area. Her experience gives her strong connections not just to Tyler, but to the entire East Texas area, and I believe her talents will allow her to continue to develop the wonderful ministries of Catholic Charities of East Texas,” Bishop Strickland said of the appointment.
“Our ability to provide outreach to those in need in various ways has been greatly enhanced by the work of Catholic Charities over the past 10 years, and I believe Kathy will be able to extend the ministries and outreach of our charitable works to every corner of the diocese,” the bishop said. “Her organizational abilities and her energetic approach to the challenges of caring for the people of God will greatly enhance our ability to lead our communities to a higher level of Gospel-centered care for those in need.” Read More>>>
