The Philadelphia Inquirer says Waldron Mercy Academy principal Nell Stetser acknowledged the decision not to renew Margie Winters’ contract “continues to cause a great deal of pain and heartfelt questioning.”
A date for the September meeting wasn’t immediately available. The principal says a separate meeting will also be held for the Waldron community to speak with the school’s leadership.
Winters was fired in June for being in a same-sex marriage, something she disclosed to the school upon her hiring eight years ago.
Archbishop Charles Chaput (SHAY’-poo) and the Sisters of Mercy support the firing, saying it’s consistent with church doctrine.
