Diocese of Rockville Centre

From: Sean Dolan

After further conversation about the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Education Department of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, the Diocese and Christopher Marblo have mutually agreed not to pursue their relationship any further.

Said Mr. Marblo, “I am a proud Catholic and was honored to have been offered the position. I have tremendous respect for Bishop Murphy, the students and families of the Diocese, and for Catholic education, but it became clear in the course of my transition that my educational philosophy could conflict with that of the Diocese. The honorable and best course of action for me and for the Diocese was for me to step aside quickly, which I have done.”

Said Sean P. Dolan, Diocesan spokesman, “Mr. Marblo is a talented educator and administrator and we regret that we have come to this mutual decision. It is, however, the right decision for the Diocese and for Mr. Marblo. We wish him well. The Diocese’s search to fill the position will continue.”
