Parents Decide, but Only Outside Monroe County

This week's Catholic Courier is running an article reporting, in part, on St. Patrick School in Owego. The Courier reports that the school has met an enrollment quota and will continue to stay open. Fr. William Moorby, pastor of Blessed Trinity/St. Patrick parishes said that

"setting an enrollment quota was based on the parish pastoral council's wish to give affected families a role in determining the school's future.

"'We wanted to leave it up to the people,' he said, adding that parental support of St. Patrick has remained at a high level."

What a great idea: Giving affected families a role in determining a school's future!

It's too bad our Big Brother in Christ won't let it spread to Monroe County.
