“The Catholic church has a lot of property. And when that’s under 6 feet of water, we needed resources, too.”- Sarah Comiskey

Sarah Comiskey- Director of Communications, Archdiocese of New Orleans, 1/15/08

Sarah Comiskey was a breath of fresh air. She was young and had so much passion for her job. I don’t mean to be rude but I think we expected her to be much older than she was. What exactly does she her job entail? Sarah maintains communications with every organization that falls under the Archdiocese umbrella, including the 86 schools and the 114 active parishes. Let’s just say she’s a very busy woman. When she entered the room and announced that she was late, I think we all developed a small infatuation with her for different reasons.

Although we were there to talk to Sarah specifically about radio, she also spoke to us about the schools and what hardships the students had undergone during the past 2 years in New Orleans. “We heard that schools would be closed for the academic year…As soon as we heard that, we knew that was unacceptable.” They placed students who were displaced by the storm into schools free of charge until more schools were able to function. We found that to be quite heroic of the Archdiocese.
