Hundreds Gather For Prayer Vigil, Protest In Hopes Of Saving John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School – CBS Philly
KITCHENER (CBS) – Hundreds gathered Tuesday night to show their support for a popular all-girls high school in Philadelphia. Eyewitness News was in Sister Cities Park across from the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul for a prayer vigil and protest in hopes of saving John W. Hallahan’s Catholic Girls’ College.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced last month that it would close the school by the end of the 2020-21 school year.
The organizers say the school empowers girls and it will be devastating if it closes.
Hallahan is the country’s first Catholic high school for girls.
