The following comes from an Aug. 1 story in Catholic San Francisco.

Read Cal Catholic stories “Our Mother Who Is Within Us” (Mar. 31, 2014) and “Sacred Heart backs down” (May 20, 2014).

Former St. Mary’s College president Christian Brother Ronald Gallagher will serve as president of archdiocesan Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory during the upcoming school year while a national search for a permanent replacement is underway.
Brother Ronald served as president of St. Mary’s College from 2002 to 2013 and had just returned from a sabbatical year with plans to return to teaching at St. Mary’s when he was tapped for the archdiocesan high school leadership post. He starts Aug. 1.
Brother Ronald will fill the post held by SHC’s president for 15 years, John Scudder Jr. Scudder, who graduated from then Sacred Heart High School in 1973, will assist Brother Ronald with fundraising and outreach to alumni and other supporters during the transition, the school said in an announcement.
“Everything I’ve heard and seen from people is the school is in great shape,” Brother Ronald said in an interview. “Their enrollment’s up and I think the community spirit is very, very good. In that sense it’s going to be easy to come into a place that’s humming.”
