On Tuesday, after news arrived that their school would close, some of the girls at Our Lady of Loretto High School cried. But by Wednesday afternoon, most of the watery eyes gave way to a steely resolve not to allow the small school to be shut down without a fight. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced that the 249-student girls' school would be shut down because of declining enrollment.

In the face of strong protests, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced Tuesday that it has abandoned plans to close Bishop Conaty High School, one of its oldest inner-city girls' schools. But church officials said they will preserve the Conaty campus by closing another girls' high school, 249-student Our Lady of Loretto, and moving those students to Conaty beginning in September.

In light of your report that "Many Latinos Fare Better in Catholic Schools" (Aug. 3), one must ask why two archdiocesan high schools in the downtown area have been closed, leaving the densely Latino region between Sacred Heart High School in Lincoln Heights and Catholic Girls School on Pico Boulevard with no Catholic secondary education for girls. What a service to the community and to the vigor of its future congregations if the archdiocese would again open Our Lady of Loretto High School, which from its central location could easily serve 400 to 500 central city youth.

An erring priest would tremble when summoned to the office of Cardinal James Francis McIntyre, a stately prince of the church who was gracious with the devout and deferential but impatient with dissidents and the derelict in duty.

Sister Janet Harris doesn't hear the shouts from across the grounds at Central Juvenile Hall. She continues walking--her thoughts adrift like a balloon on land wind, carried to waters deep with unfinished paperwork and squalls of dire sequela. She is rarely still. Shortly after 5 a.m., after a cup of coffee thinned by milk, she often walks a mile. That is when she prays.
