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.
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.
