It’s official, just after 11am on Friday, September 24, 2010 McCoy High School was renamed “Monsignor McCoy High School”.

The Knights of Columbus made the suggestion to the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education last year, after concerns were raised that the name did not reflect anything that had to do with the Catholic Church. Adding “Monsignor” to the name of the school will also pay tribute to the late Monsignor E.J. McCoy who passed away in 1971.

MHCBE Board Member Peter Grad said that the new name will identify McCoy as a Catholic school, and newcomers to the city may notice that it is a Catholic School.

McCoy was a priest at St. Patrick’s Church, and lived in Medicine Hat until his passing.

Lots of people think there aren’t many homeless people in Medicine Hat; however, the sad truth is that there are a lot of people in distress, especially with the recession. One place that is in need of winter clothing is the Hope Street Church. The McCoy High School – Silent Angels social justice team needs your help with their Benchwarmer campaign! They are collecting clean, new or slightly used winter coats, toques, mittens & new socks, etc. until January 15th, 2010.
