2nd Indy Catholic high school counselor loses jobMarch 26, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A second guidance counselor at an Indianapolis Catholic high school will lose her job because she’s in a same-sex marriage.
Attorney Kathleen DeLaney tells The Indianapolis Star that Roncalli High School has notified her client, Lynn Starkey, that her contract won’t be renewed for next school year.
The archdiocese said in a statement Monday the Catholic schools’ staff and teachers are employed on one-year contracts that don’t automatically renew. It said “Starkey is currently in breach of her contract with Roncalli High School because she is in a civil union that is considered ‘contrary to a valid marriage as seen through the eyes of the Catholic Church.’”
Starkey married her spouse in 2015 .
Roncalli placed guidance counselor Shelly Fitzgerald on administrative leave in August because she’s in a same-sex marriage.
