Bishop McDevitt, St. Catherine Laboure under new leadership

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - For the first time in years, Bishop McDevitt High School and St. Catherine Laboure School will not be led by nuns.

Jim Vail will take over as president of Bishop McDevitt and his wife Colette will be principal of St. Catherine Laboure.

"Wherever God wants us, this is where it happens to be, and the cards aligned, the stars aligned," Colette Vail said. "The will of God came through and here we are."

"I think the reason we have such a successful marriage is we're both in the same business, so she can't really complain about the hours," Jim Vail said.

The Veil have 80 years combined experience in Catholic education.
