Rockville Centre, N.Y., Apr 15, 2021 / 14:01 pm
In the wake of bankruptcy filings, the Diocese of Rockville Centre in March announced the sale of its $5.2 million pastoral center to help pay creditors. It also announced the closure of three more grammar schools on Long Island, noting additional financial troubles from the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Father Eric Fasano, the diocese’s vicar general, the move from the pastoral center will save costs.
“The sale and our relocation will have no effect on our ministry. In fact, the operating efficiencies that will result are expected to free resources that can be directed to those with the greatest need,” Fasano said March 26.
The property at 50 North Park Avenue in Rockville Centre includes a five-story building and a parking lot with space for about 58 cars. It has been sold to Synergy Holding Partners LLC.
