Scripture Quote



"Teacher, which commandment is the greatest?" Jesus replied, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."



   Adapted from Matthew 22:36-40

OFFICIAL NOTICE: Rockville Centre - Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.  In conformity with IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.  Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
