Read the article in The Advocate about Redemptorist closing due to declining enrollment.

Read the linked article in The Advocate this morning.

Does anyone know why this project has...

There was an article in the advocate on this proposal after most of the surrounding parishes backed out of the BR Loop last year.

College tennis championship tournament for women kicked off yesterday and men today.
