Diocese of Trenton closes migration and refugee services office

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.
