How great is Lori's commitment to Baltimore Catholic schools? [Letter]

September 03, 2014

In his commentary, "The Civil Right Act at 50" (Aug. 31), Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori writes that "...our Catholic schools in Baltimore City educate majority non-Catholic, African-American students whose education is heavily subsidized by the Church's private partners seeking to improve lives (and communities) through education."

It seems to me a bit hypocritical for Archbishop Lori to support these commitments when a few years ago, the archdiocese closed so many Catholic schools in Baltimore City where most of the students needed to have the influence of those schools to improve their lives.
