We are defined by our schools & Parishes. They contribute to our
Neighborhood being a desirable place to live & raise Children. Our parents, Grandparents & Great Grandparents attended these same schools!
We are our schools & our schools our us! Please don't shut us down we are one!

We come from the same family lineage that has been in these Parishes since the turn of the century. Closing our schools will end that. Merging our schools will strenthen it. And build on the Catholic community that lives here.

      Now appealing to the Vatican. If you live in the 19148 or 19147 area code these school closers will affect you! maybe not today or tomorrow but they will affect our neighborhood more than a Casino ever would. Lets hope and PRAY that the Vatican sees the LIGHT!!!!!

      Philadelphia Public Schools are a disgrace...!!! Full of volence, corruption, and poor leadership... Would you want your child to go to one ??? We need Catholic education...

      So my grandchildren and the other students in the neighborhood can get the education in the community they live in. If we close these schools many children will miss out on a Catholic education that should be passed down from generation to generation. Please keep OLMC open for the children of this community.

      Because WE ARE," MT CARMEL" and "SACRED HEART," and want to keep it that way.

      Because these kids deserve to have their own identity and grow up and play with their classmates after school like we did, my family goes back to the VERY beginning and I am heartbroken that it won't be there anymore. WE CAN DO IT!!!
