    It is so sad that our school may close. My children want to sell their belongings to make money for the school. It breaks my heart. I’m not sure if there is enough room in nearby Catholic schools to accomodate our children. It has hardly been mentioned that if our school closes, then our church will soon follow. Most of our congregation is the schoolchildren and their families. If the school closes and then the church closes, nearby merchants will soon suffer and close. We frequent many of the stores on Palisade just from simply going back and forth to the school or to the church. If we’re not there anymore, those stores are going to lose a lot of business. The Archdiocese is creating an avalanche effect that is going to hurt a lot of people. I am disheartened that a bunch of adults can’t find better solutions for our children.

    IT’S HORRIBLE THAT THEY HAVE TO CLOSE SCHOOLS BECAUSE THEY HAD TO PAY ALL THOSE LAWSUITS. THE BISHOP SHOULD TELL THE TRUTH AND STOP LYING ABOUT WHY THEY HAVE TO DO THIS.

    The population is increasing, and the schools are closing down in New York City?

    Someone is stealing the funds wearing masks or they have other plans to make money by selling schools and property. Many diocese are liable to pay sex abuse victims.
