New Principal Update

Dear Parents & Supporters,

As some of you have surely heard, last week I accepted a new position as Superintendent of Schools for the Catholic Schools of Montana.  This is a very bittersweet decision because Joanne, Henry, Lucy, and I (and of course, George) have all grown to love this little school and the great community of parents.  However, the opportunity was too great to pass up and we’re excited to begin this great new chapter of our lives.
For a news story, paste into your browser:

The irony is that the outgoing Superintendent in Montana (Patrick Haggarty) is leaving that position to come to Seattle.  I hope to convince him of the importance of supporting our school.  I am confident that HRRS is heading up and improving every year.
Father Maurer and the Catholic Schools Office have already begun a conversation about how best to fill the position and more details will come as the information comes available.  Rest assured, Fr. Maurer and the Board of Directors are engaged in the school and will work hard to secure an excellent leader.  More details to come soon.

Dr. Tim Uhl

Identity Theft

As noted earlier, it has recently come to our attention that some Archdiocesan employees and volunteers are victims of a national tax refund fraud. Victims’ social security numbers have been used in fraudulent tax returns for the calendar year 2013.

Please be assured that we are taking appropriate steps to determine whether or not a breach of systems within the Archdiocese (including Parishes and Schools) or systems of our vendors has occurred or if there is some other source of the problem. Once this determination is made, we will immediately take appropriate action to address the situation. We have hired a forensic security firm, Stroz Friedberg, to assist us in analyzing and repairing the affected systems and are working with the FBI and IRS to address the issue.

For further information please go to our website at We will do our best to update this page as more information becomes available.

Update as of 3/14/2014: Phone Scams
IRS phone scams are on the rise, and they can take on a variety of forms. Some fraudsters call pretending to be with the IRS, telling the taxpayer he/she owes money. They can threaten the taxpayer with arrest, loss of a driver’s license or in some cases deportation. In many cases this is followed up with a call from someone claiming to be with the local police department or DMV. Others scammers call fishing for personal information like Social Security numbers by telling the taxpayer she’s owed a big refund — she just needs to verify certain personal details.
The IRS recommends if you receive one of these phone calls, turn around and call the IRS at 800-829-1040. And if you know for certain that you don’t owe money, call to report the incident at 800-366-4484.
