The Roman Catholic Archdiocese in Chicago is closing six schools in the near future, according to CBS - with the latest update reported on Friday evening. Superintendent Sister Mary Paul McCaughey of the Catholic schools asserts that the closing of schools is unfortunate but must be done due to financial woes in the schools.

McCaughey said she would be notifying the schools personally regarding closures. Since the announcement on Thursday, it has been learned by Friday night that five of the six closings that are closing are:

  • Our Lady of Victory School in Chicago
  • The Academy of St. Benedict the African in Chicago
  • Santa Maria del Popolo in Mundelein
  • St. Christopher in Midlothian
  • St. Florian Catholic School in Chicago

The sixth school slated for closing was to be identified by week’s end.

McCaughey said she will be assisting schools - their staff and parents - with the unfortunate closings and the emotions they will be experiencing through the process.
