Our Commitment to Catholic Schools
Recently I had to announce one of the most difficult decisions any bishop or pastor ever makes: to close a school. In this case, the closure and consolidation of nine elementary schools and one archdiocesan-sponsored high school here in the Archdiocese of Newark. These school closings were made necessary by the combination of declining enrollment and rising subsidy.
The latest edition of Rejoice in the Lord, Cardinal Tobin’s newsletter to all the faithful in the Archdiocese is now available.
