The Archdiocese of New York is studying ways to save Catholic education. It will release a list of schools next month that may have to merge or close.

Spokesman Joe Zwilling said Tuesday that Archbishop Timothy Dolan's strategic plan, Pathway to Excellence, will serve as a roadmap for maintaining and growing Catholic education and Catholic schools in the archdiocese.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that as many as 30 of 216 archdiocese schools may be affected. Zwilling told The Associated Press no list exists at this point.

He says parents, principals and pastors will have a chance to respond before any final decisions are made.

Dolan believes all parishes should support all the schools in the archdiocese, instead of just their own.
