Two Schools to Close in La Crosse Diocese...

...and no one has yet blamed Archbishop Burke!
Coulee Catholic Schools will remain intact and two Catholic elementary schools — Mary, Mother of the Church and St. James — will close at the end of the school year, the administrator of the Diocese of La Crosse announced Tuesday.

"After having carefully and prayerfully weighed the whole matter, I have decided that it is not possible at this time to return the Catholic schools to the parishes," the Rev. Richard Gilles said in a prepared statement that rejected an 11th-hour plan to eliminate the consolidated school system and return all grade schools to parish control.
