Mahoney, former Bishop of Saskatoon, in recognition of his many contributions to Catholic Education in Saskatoon. Prior to his appointment as Bishop, Bishop Mahoney was a classroom teacher at St. Paul's High School and E.D. Feehan High School. He also served as the first Principal of Holy Cross High School. During his episcopate, Bishop Mahoney remained interested and involved in Catholic education and as a speaker in the field of education.[1]
