Archdiocesan high schools and Catholic elementary schools in the City of Philadelphia will be closed Thursday, Feb. 13 due to the heavy snow and ice expected to begin falling Wednesday night in the Philadelphia region.
The Philadelphia Archdiocese made the announcement Wednesday, Feb. 12, ahead of a storm that is expected to drop six to eight inches of snow and a mix of sleet and rain in the city and up to a foot or more of snow in the western and northern suburbs.
Archdiocesan high schools and Catholic elementary schools in the suburban counties normally follow the decision of their corresponding local public school district and submit closure status independently.
CatholicPhilly.com will report on closures or delays of schools in the wake of the storm for the rest of the week as information becomes available.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
