Catholic schools across the state and country are struggling. The Newark archdiocese alone closed four of its 70 elementary schools this year.
An estimated $500,000 renovation of Archbishop John Myers' to-be retirement home has led some Catholics to second guess their future contributions.
NCR Today: The Newark, N.J., archdiocese responded to criticism about the $500,000 upgrades to Archbishop John Myers' soon-to-be retirement residence.
The home has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a three-car garage and an outdoor pool. The renovations would add an indoor exercise pool, hot tub, library and elevator.
