Argentines in Brooklyn

At first glance, it appears that two groups from Argentina work in Brooklyn parishes:
1) A religious congregation of Sisters, The Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara, S.S.V.M., works in Sts. Peter and Paul, Williamsburg.
2) Members of the Institute of the Divine Word, I.V.E., work at Mary, Mother of the Church parish, 749 Linwood Street, New Lots.

Catherine McAuley HS to close

Sad to read, this announcement in the Tablet states that Catherine McAuley High School will close in June.  The school has educated students for decades at its location on East 37th Street near Foster Avenue.  It is named after the foundress of the Religious Sisters of Mercy.
