BRAINTREE- Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley announced Jan. 30 that James P. McDonough will be leaving his post as Chancellor effective March 2nd. Mr. McDonough has served as Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Boston for almost six years. During that time he has been responsible for reorganizing the financial management of the Archdiocese, including budget and financial reporting as well as the structure and functioning of the organization.

Cardinal O'Malley praised Mr. McDonough for his unwavering dedication and commitment and the superior management skill that allowed the Archdiocese to reestablish a sound financial foundation. "Over the past six years Jim has served the Church with distinction. He faced our most challenging issues with the willingness to develop solutions that addressed the problems and respected the people we serve. With the benefit of his leadership, the Archdiocese of Boston is better able to serve our parishes, schools and ministries. We are grateful for all that he has done for us and look forward to his continued participation in the mission of the Church."

In addition, Cardinal Seán named John E. Straub, a former Special Assistant to President George W. Bush and former Associate Dean at Harvard University as Interim Chancellor. Currently Mr. Straub serves as Executive Director of Finance and Operations for Central Ministries with the Archdiocese.
