Concerned parents are continuing to take action following the recent announcement about Catholic school closures made by the Archdiocese of New York.
Some parents rallied outside of St. Brendan’s on Friday afternoon, one of the schools set to close its doors this spring. Parents are rallying outside of St. Angela Merici on Friday night as they try to save the school.  
This comes as the Archdiocese of New York announced that six Catholic schools in the Bronx will be closing at the end of the 2022-2023 school year. They also announced four other Bronx Catholic schools will be combining into two.  
“I just want everybody else to support us and all the other schools that are being affected,” said one concerned parent. “Your voice does matter… hopefully we can keep our schools open.”
