DOR clarifies its plan

While the diocese is discussing (some say compelling) the reversion of 4 of its 11 Monroe County Catholic schools to parish school status, it has made it clear that it will not allow any of the 13 schools closed by Bishop Clark in June 2008 to reopen.

YNN Rochester is reporting that

The diocese clarified its plan with a follow-up statement:

"Monroe County Catholic School officials have no plans to reopen any of the 13 schools that were closed as part of the restructuring in 2008. The current study exploring reversion of our existing schools to a parish-run model currently involves several, but not all, existing sites."

They quickly threw water on that possibility, didn't they?

As a parent from one of the closed 13 schools, I can say that as much as we wish to reopen and are biding our time, all that I have spoken to are certainly glad that THE DIOCESE has no plans to reopen us. The last thing we need is to put all our time, talent, and treasure into our school again and be at the mercy of the diocese AGAIN.

I agree, Anon 9:59.
I'm counting the days until we're done with the diocese in June. I'll put my time, talent and treasure where it has a chance of doing some good, a junior high run by one of the independent high schools.

I'd like to put my time, talent, and treasure into helping the next bishop remove all the dissidents running our parishes.
