Diocese of Trenton closes migration and refugee services office

According to The Times of Trenton:

Overwhelmed by a surge in the refugee resettlement cases it handles, the Diocese of Trenton will close its more than 30-year-old office of migration and refugee services at the end of the month, leaving the region without a resettlement agency.

The article also disturbingly notes:

All the Catholic schools in Trenton were closed, along with some parishes, and in late 2010 the diocese spent $550,000 to buy a house in Lawrence for the recently installed Bishop David O'Connell, rather than have him live in the official residence on West State Street.
