This June, Six Catholic Schools in the Bronx Will Close for Good: the Archdiocese of New York Says That It Will Close

The Archdiocese of New York has announced the closure of a dozen New York City schools after temporarily suspending closures during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Bronx is home to half of the city’s closing schools.

Here Are Some of the Bronx’s Closing Schools:

Unionport’s Holy Family Elementary School; Williamsbridge’s Immaculate Conception Elementary School; and Westchester Square’s Santa Maria Elementary School.

  • Located in Melrose, St. Angela Merici High School
  • Located in Norwood, St. Brendan’s School
  • Mount Hope’s St. Margaret Mary School

In Addition, the Archdiocese Has Ordered the Consolidation of the Following Schools in the Bronx:

  • The Bronx church of St. Francis Xavier is merging with another nearby church, St. Clare of Assisi.
  • The Bronx’s St. Gabriel School and Italy’s St. Margaret of Cortona are joining forces.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, issued a statement saying, “It is never a good day when we announce closures to any of our beloved schools,” but that the goal is to enhance the remaining institutions and sustain Catholic education in New York for decades to come.

“We appreciate these are tough times for many families, and today is undoubtedly a sad day for everyone in our Catholic school’s community,” said Michael J. Deegan, superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of New York.

“I’m saddened by the loss of each and every one of our excellent educational institutions. Despite this setback, we are resolute in our commitment to continuing the great New York legacy of Catholic education by helping all children who wish to continue their Catholic education find a place at another quality school within the Archdiocese.

Numerous churches and parishes in The Bronx have merged or gone out of business in the past decade, and many more have closed permanently.

Growing up in the Bronx, I never imagined that so many Catholic institutions, including churches, would disappear.

The only things that appeared permanent to a child of the 1970s and 1980s were these institutions, but alas, they have shown to be as fragile as anything else over time.
