The Diocese of Rockville Centre (DRVC) today announced the Morning Star Initiative, a bold plan for the revitalization of Catholic elementary school education on Long Island.
In partnership with the Marianists, who operate two high schools, a middle school, and one elementary school on Long Island, the Diocese is undertaking a comprehensive review of the DRVC elementary schools in 2020, leading to an action plan to restore a robust Catholic culture, academic excellence and fiscally sustainable schools.
Bishop John Barres, Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, believes the initiative is critical to the strength and longevity of Catholic parishes, communities and education on Long Island since most Catholic elementary schools have struggled with enrollment, school building maintenance, and teacher salaries in recent years. Some schools have even been forced to close.
