Pastors at 14 Catholic churches in D.C. and Maryland say their schools are in danger of closing or undergoing major changes if enrollments continue to decline.

The schools operated by the Washington Archdiocese serve students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Pastors met with the parents of school children in the past month to discuss possible changes.

The archdiocese operates 96 schools serving 28,629 students, down 2.4 percent from last year.
