Despite appeals from pastors and leaders, two Catholic schools in Westchester will definitely close.
St. John the Evangelist in White Plains and St. Denis in Yonkers will close their doors for good at the end of the year. The closures are part of the New York Archdiocese's realignment plan. Schools were picked for closure based on declining enrollment and financial troubles. The plan also involves the building of new parishes further north where Catholic populations are on the rise.
It was also announced last month that four Westchester parishes would close. Decisions about the parishes will be made in the coming weeks.
