This is a work in progress, an attempt to use the label system to identify, describe, and sort the Catholic churches in Brooklyn, New York. To speed your search, please use the search box at top left, or peruse the labels on the right. Because newer posts are placed on top, a blog resembles a diary in reverse. Do not neglect the "Older posts" link at the bottom of each page. In many cases, clicking on a photo will enlarge it.

Please see Msgr. Harrington's announcement dated March 1, 2011, linked here. It describes the creation of one Catholic academy in Queens and two in Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, Salve Regina Catholic Academy (that is, elementary school) will be formed from the merger of three schools: St. Michael, St. Rita, and St. Sylvester. Salve Regina will use the St. Michael building at Jerome Street and Liberty Avenue, East New York.
The East Flatbush merger concerns St. Catherine of Genoa school moving to St. Therese of Lisieux parish on Avenue D near Troy Avenue. The combined elementary school will be named St. Catherine of Genoa - St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Academy.
The announcement from Msgr. Harrington does not provide current enrollment numbers for the Brooklyn mergers.
