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 the 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.
A Message From Sister Joanne Callahan - Superintendent of Schools
Families throughout our Diocese are in crisis as they continue to grapple with increasing financial challenges to provide a religious education for their children, which has sadly resulted in the painful process of closing some Catholic schools in recent years.
State legislation for a New York Education Investment Tax Credit would make attending Catholic schools affordable for more middle-class and low-income families. This bill would encourage more charitable donations from individuals and businesses to fund tuition scholarships.
In order to be successful, we need your help right now. Will you please take two minutes to sign an online petition to show your support for the Education Investment Tax Credit?
Last year, a bill was approved by the New York State Senate. Your voice and direct action today will help put needed pressure to pass the bill (# A.1826) in the State Assembly and sign into law.
Please sign the petition and support the fight to preserve Catholic schools for our children.
Sr. Joanne Callahan
Superintendent of Schools

Does Your Company Have a Matching Funds Program?
If so, your donations to OLM can easily be doubled! Some companies will even "match" your volunteer time with dollars! In other words, if you volunteer at OLM, your employer will convert your volunteer hours into dollars and provide a check to OLM to match your efforts.
