New Ulm Area Catholic Schools has announced that Reverend Matthew Wiering will serve as Interim Principal at New Ulm Cathedral High School for the upcoming school year. The announcement comes following the resignation of current Cathedral Principal Peter Roufs this week. Wiering is a 2003 graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul who has taught high school English and Religion at schools in Louisiana and Indiana. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2010 and has served as parochial vicar at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity and St. John the Baptist for the past 2 years, as well as an 11th-grade religion teacher at Cathedral High School. A search committee will now be formed to find a permanent replacement for the principal position to start in the 2014-2015 school year.
