CLICK HERE for UPDATE: CHICAGO CATHOLIC SCHOOL CLOSINGS: SIX SCHOOLS BEING CLOSED BY ARCHDIOCESE

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese in Chicago is closing several more schools in the near future, according to CBS on Thursday afternoon. Superintendent Sister Mary Paul McCaughey of the schools asserts that the closing of schools is unfortunate but must be done.

McCaughey said she would be notifying the schools personally regarding closures, but she did not say at this time how many schools would be closed or which ones would be closed. On unsubstantiated reports say six schools will be closed. Another says that five schools will be closed, one of which is Our Lady of Victory School located at 4434 North Laramie Avenue.

McCaughey said that it is an infinite sadness that the schools must close. She says she will assist the closed schools with their grieving process. She continued to say that the problem is in the continued inability to fund some schools that parishioners are unable to financially support. While the enrollment at the schools has been declining in the past, McCaughey announced that the finances are the main concern.

This school year, 50 of Chicago's public schools were closed as well.
