School’s ‘desacralization’

December 7, 2017

Re “San Domenico ‘will no longer be Catholic,’ sisters announce,” Nov. 19:

This is the desacralization of a formerly Catholic school, the opposite of any ministry of any Catholic, let alone a religious order. All in the name of political correctness so as not to offend anyone.

There are many non-Catholics who attend and teach at Catholic schools – a retired non-Catholic teacher lives across the street from me – and I even remember a Muslim girl who attended St. Raphael’s when I went there. No wonder there is a dearth of vocations to religious orders like the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael that have stripped their identity because of actions like this.
