The following comes from an August 20 email sent by Catholic Charities.
It was announced that Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has appointed Simon Manning as the new president of the Catholic Charities CYO board of directors as of July 1, 2013. Manning replaces Deborah Dasovich as her term ends.
An investment banking professional with more than 20 years of capital markets experience, Manning joined the board of directors in March 2011. Manning is head of Institutional Sales for the Investment Solutions group managing Distribution at Wells Fargo. He was previously the director of U.S. Equity-Linked Securities for Lazard Capital Markets and held prior positions with Piper Jaffray and Company and Bank of America Securities (Montgomery Securities).
Manning earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from Gonzaga University. An active alumnus, he is currently on their Board of Regents in addition to serving on their endowment investment committee. Since joining the board of directors, he has lent his expertise to the strategic planning, finance and executive committees, as well as chairing the governance committee.
As president of the board of directors, Manning chairs the executive committee and oversees the governance of the organization, under the guidance of the archbishop, who is the chairman of the board. Manning also joins Mark Okashima, treasurer, and Carlos Alvarez, secretary, as the agency’s board officers.
Gonzaga Board of Regents – Huh…
Did he have any part (either way) in the following act of Cowardice:
“Gonzaga Professor Laments University ‘Scandal’ in Yielding to HHS Mandate
Dr. David DeWolf, a professor at Gonzaga University’s School of Law who teaches First Amendment issues, is asking whether the Jesuit university has completely surrendered its religious freedom.
DeWolf, in a piece that appears on the website of The 1887 Trust, a new organization of alumni and parents committed to promoting the Catholic identity of the Jesuit university in Spokane, Washington, asks why Gonzaga agreed so readily last year to cover contraception, abortifacients and sterilization procedures as mandated by the Obama administration’s HHS mandate.
“Gonzaga made this choice at the same time that many other Catholic institutions, including EWTN and Notre Dame, filed suit to have the regulations issued by the Administration struck down as violating either the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the 1st amendment to the U.S. Constitution,or both,” writes DeWolf….
Dewolf argues that the University’s decision to violate its own stated beliefs is a “scandal” that leads Catholics astray.
Sadly, this conforms to what has become the culture at Gonzaga University.
Instead of the Church’s teaching on sexuality at the forefront, with dissenting views tolerated in the spirit of academic freedom—but clearly and authoritatively refuted—it is common for dissenting views to be treated as normative, and those who support the Church’s teaching to be regarded as aberrational. …
Okay, so let’s bash this guy without knowing anything about him?
One question. What part did Manning have in the decision by Wells Fargo to abandon the Boy Scouts of America to the Gay agenda?
May God have mercy on America!
Viva Cristo Rey!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Really, what’s the point of even having this “newsflash?” And what does it prove about Manning? Is he faithful to the Church’s Magesterium? Where’s the evidence? To me, the article is just shallow and bland. Usually we get more depth when announcing these things. This time a dud. Just saying. Finally, IMPEACH OBAMA, DRIVE THE ANTI- CATHOLIC BIGOT FROM THE W.H. And GOD BLESS ALL, MARKRITE
