The article informs that a Roman Catholic high school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana will be renamed for St. Michael the Archangel, effective next school year. The change was made because the school is now named for a former bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge who was accused of sexual abuse. Bishop Sullivan High School, which has 777 students, will become the St. Michael the Archangel Regional Diocesan High School, said Deacon Bob Furlow, the director of communications for the diocese. Bishop Sullivan died in 1982. The founders of the high school, in fact, had originally decided to name the school after St. Michael the Archangel.
