Parent’s Protest, 1968

Parents and their children protest the Christian Brothers withdrawal from St. Mary’s School in Yonkers, New York.  The Brothers opened St. Mary’s School in 1861 to educate 300 students.  It was the first Catholic parochial school between New York City and Poughkeepsie and the oldest in the city of Yonkers.  After more than one hundred years, due to a lack of personnel within the Institute, the Brothers withdrew.  Parents, students and the Yonkers community deeply regretted the Brothers’ exit.
