"Remember, this is a death in the family, but it is not the death of the family," Msgr. Hugh McManus said Sunday in Scarsdale during Mass at Our Lady of Fatima, whose school the Catholic Archdiocese of New York announced would close at the end of the school year. "We're being asked to close our school so that other schools can survive, to serve the welfare of the whole." (Jan. 27, 2013)
