Conference welcomes new superintendents for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati & Diocese of Cleveland

Susan Gibbons named in Cincinnati; Chris Knight moves to Cleveland

Dayton native Susan M. Gibbons has been appointed Director of Educational Services and Superintendent of Catholic schools for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

“Susan Gibbons has devoted her entire career to Catholic education in our Archdiocese,” said Archbishop Schnurr. “She will be a steady hand as Superintendent, just as she was as Interim Superintendent, insuring that the strong forward movement of our schools will continue.”


Christopher M. Knight, who has served as the senior director of Catholic education/superintendent of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Toledo, Ohio, has been chosen to serve as the next secretary for catechetical formation and education and superintendent of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.

“The future of our Catholic schools represents a major priority for our diocese,” said the Most Reverend Richard Lennon, bishop of the Diocese of Cleveland.  “I am pleased that Chris has chosen to help us continue to the good work of Margaret Lyons and further strengthen our schools in the teaching of core subjects and catechetical formation of students in our Catholic faith and tradition.”
