    The Archbishop of Newark and his spokesperson are lying when they cite declining enrollment as a reason for closing St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth. The school has the same number of students enrolled today as it had in the mid 1990s. Was the Archbishop of Newark sent to administer the shutdown of the Catholic Church in northern New Jersey, or to BUILD the Kingdom of God? On this page one can see many of the properties the Archdiocese is selling or renting in four counties: http://www.rcan.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=56 Archbishop Myers may be a successful real estate magnate, but as a shepherd and evangelist he has failed miserably. He should resign and let a real spiritual leader take his place.
