New York archdiocese weighs school closings

Catholic World News - September 21, 2010

The New York archdiocese is planning to close or merge a number of Catholic schools in order to bolster the viability of the parochial-school system.

While published reports have said that 30 of New York’s 216 parochial schools could close, archdiocesan officials stressed that no firm decisions have yet been made. A list of schools selected for closing will be released next month.

    Which Catholic Kennedy is that Kennedy Catholic school, which Abp Dolan gushes about, named after? Certainly there was plenty of money expended in its construction.
