High school counselor invites witches who gave students crystals, loses job
January 22, 2023 | Pennsylvania
A Catholic high school counselor in Pennslyvania lost her job after inviting three “witches” to speak to students, who gave them crystals that Wiccans believe have alleged special powers.
A career and college counselor at North Catholic High School was placed on leave and later resigned following an investigation by the school’s administration, Pittsburgh news outlet KDKA-TV reports, while not revealing the counselor’s identity.
According to Michelle Peduto, the director of Catholic education for the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, the students themselves expressed concerns about the planned visit by the witches before Christmas break and brought it to the attention of the school’s administrators.
“We followed our process and protocol and as of today, actually, a few days, she’s not with the school anymore,” Peduto was quoted as saying.
Peduto said the school puts its faith in Jesus Christ, not in objects such as crystals.
“Rosary beads? Yes, but crystals, no,” Peduto told KDKA-TV Investigator Andy Sheehan. .. (Excerpt from The Christian Post)
