Jill Reilly, superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, will leave her position July 2. Reilly’s goal during her two-year tenure was to help Catholic schools through a time of transition with compassion, vigor, collaboration and innovation. She wrote in an email to school administrators, “Catholic schools are now on the verge of a new era, and the time of transition is drawing to a close. My work as superintendent has brought me much joy in serving our Church, our dedicated school leaders, and ultimately the beautiful and blossoming students and their families. It has been an honor and a blessing to engage in this work.”

Auxiliary Bishop Andrew Cozzens, vicar of education for the archdiocese, has worked closely with Reilly over the past 18 months. He stated, “Dr. Reilly’s passion and expertise have been great assets to the whole archdiocese in this time of transition, and we are grateful for the generosity with which she has served.”

In April, Bishop Cozzens announced a new Office for the Mission of Catholic Education, which will become more focused on its Catholic mission of evangelizing and less diversified in proving a wide variety of services of a quasi-school district. “Dr. Reilly has helped us move in that direction, and I am grateful for her service and he dedication to Catholic education,” he said.

Reilly plans to return to consulting on more focused projects that will advance the mission of Catholic education.
