A grassroots effort to fund a new school on the property of the now-closed Bishop McGann Mercy Diocesan High School in Riverhead was stymied when organizers learned someone made a $10 million offer on the property. It wasn’t immediately clear who had made the offer to the Diocese of Rockville Centre, which owns the property. The school closed at the end of the 2017-2018 academic year. A group of parents and alumni called the Friends of East End Catholic Education had been raising money to establish a new school on the property. They met with the diocese on Aug. 13 only to learn that the offer had been made back in June and coalesced in recent weeks, 27East reported. Church officials had previously told the group that the property wasn’t up for sale at all. [27east]
