St. Marys resident Jean Zore, a veteran county government employee, was recently appointed Elk County chief clerk.
A 1977 St. Marys Area High School graduate, Zore had an early interest in business and went on to DuBois Business College following high school.
After working in DuBois for a period of time, Zore landed a position in the county's parole/probation department in 1986.
A 10-foot cross that was once displayed in St. Leo's Church now hangs on a mausoleum in the cemetery facing Montmorenci Road.
The cross was replaced in 2006 and stored in the basement of the rectory until Monday, Sept. 20, when Father Brian Vossler and fellow parishioners hung it against the mausoleum in St. Leo's Cemetery.
âThey wanted the Corpus Christi, the crucified Christ in the church,â said Fr. Vossler. âThe resurrected Christ now hangs on the mausoleum, which is a very appropriate symbol.
The playground at St. Leo's Church has instituted a few new restrictions in hopes to put an end to an ongoing vandalism and littering problem.
The pastoral council recently made this decision during one of its monthly meetings.
âIn that space, we found it necessary to protect the better interests of that playground to put restrictions on its use,â said Father Brian Vossler.
âIt was an ongoing problem that we finally had to address.â
