The Archdiocese ofBoston says it will merge the last two Catholic schools in South Boston next year. The two schools, Gate of Heaven and St. Brigid, will be consolidated in the building that now houses St. Brigid, but with a new name. The schools will merge at the start of the 2009 school year. The merger is not a surprise - the two parishes already share one pastor, and the school boards have been talking about cooperation for three years. To read The Boston Globe article, click here.
