Two Sites Considered For New Catholic High School
The location for a new regional Catholic high school in western Massachusetts has been narrowed down.
A review committee for the Springfield Diocese recommends the new school be built either at the former location of Cathedral High School on Surrey Road in Springfield, or adjacent to a Catholic cemetery in Chicopee.
A spokesman said Bishop Mitchell Rozanski will announce a final decision in a few weeks.
Cathedral was destroyed by a tornado four years ago. Mayor Domenic Sarno said it is vital to rebuild on the site.
The new high school is the result of a merger of Cathedral and Holyoke Catholic High School.
