Catholic schools slated to close on Long Island

The Diocese of Rockville Centre said six schools will close next June: St. John Baptist De LaSalle Regional School in Farmingdale; St. Catherine of Sienna School in Franklin Square; St. Ignatius Loyola School in Hicksville; Sacred Heart School in North Merrick; Our Lady of Perpetual Help School in Lindenhurst; and Prince of Peace Regional School in Sayville. In addition, three schools on the East End and two in Nassau will be asked to work together and strengthen their programs if they want to remain open, said Sean Dolan, a spokesman for the diocese.
