After careful consideration, the St. Wendelin Parish Finance Council, the St. Wendelin Catholic Schools Education Foundation Board, parish and school administration and Diocesan officials have made the decision to close St. Wendelin High School, effective June 30, 2017. Finances play a major role in this decision.
In a joint statement St. Wendelin Parish leadership said, “We deeply regret having to make this decision, however, we are convinced that it is the right decision, given the present circumstances and future projections. We know there will be many questions and needs during this transition time; we will do our best to assist all. We are grateful to God for the many years that we have been able to serve Him in our parish through our Catholic high school. We give thanks for our families, students, faculty, staff, and benefactors.
We look forward with optimism that God is with us in this next chapter of Catholic education at St. Wendelin.”
