The Diocese of Rockville Centre by the numbers:

"The diocese serves approximately 1.4 million Catholics (total population in both counties is approximately 3.3 million). There are 134 parishes in 115 towns. Last year over 20,000 baptisms, 18,000 confirmations, 20,000 first communions and 5,000 marriages took place in the diocese. There are 2,137 students in Catholic kindergarten, 23,825 in primary or elementary school, 12,628 in secondary school and 3,300 in higher institutions. There are 76 Catholic elementary and high schools and one Catholic college in the diocese. "

This is the standard blurb put under all the press releases but I had never noticed that it states one Catholic college. Since there is Molloy and St. Joseph's I wonder which one is not considered Catholic?
