By Elliott Francis

Certain Catholic schools in Maryland and the District could close soon.

Pastors at fourteen Catholic churches in D.C. and Maryland say their schools are in danger of closing if enrollments continue to decline.

The schools operated by the Washington Archdiocese are in both D.C. and Maryland and serve students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Pastors met with the parents of school children in the past month to discuss possible changes.

Officials say other schools in the system have discussed plans to make their operations more sustainable. The options included increasing enrollment through community outreach and strengthening bank accounts through fundraising.

Decisions about whether schools close will be made before the January enrollment process begins.
