ST. CLOUD - Today (Tuesday) is the first day of school at St. Cloud Cathedral.  And for the first time since 1972 the students in 7th and 8th grade are a part of Cathedral -- not John XXIII Middle School.

President Mike Mullen says they retired the name over the summer, when the middle school merged with the Saints Peter, Paul and Michael Middle school.

The 7th and 8th grade students from both schools are now at the Cathedral building.
