Faced with an enrollment smaller than most parochial schools' and little prospect of improvement, Sacred Heart High School in Vineland, N.J., will close in June. Founded in 1927, Sacred Heart enrolls about 168 students in grades nine through 12, well below the threshold of 220 that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden considers viable even for grammar schools. With 52 seniors graduating this spring and just 21 freshmen starting in the fall, the prospect of a turnaround seemed slight, according to diocesan officials.

In a ceremony marked by trumpet blasts, blessings, song, and laughter, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden formally installed Bishop Dennis J. Sullivan on Tuesday as its eighth spiritual leader. "I pray that my heart continues to be shaped by Jesus Christ and that I serve as a good shepherd . . . as I walk among you," he told the crowd of 1,400 gathered at Blackwood's St. Agnes Church. The Bronx-born prelate, who spent 43 years as a priest and bishop in the Archdiocese of New York, then assured the crowd that, despite his accent, he had "Jersey credentials" because so many of his family lived in the Garden State, which he called the "Farm State" before correcting himself.

He was 26, a brand-new Catholic priest, bouncing in a jeep for the first time down a rutted dirt road in the Dominican Republic, when a flare rose above the approaching village and burst with a crack. Another flare rose and cracked, and another. "What's this?" the Rev. Dennis J. Sullivan asked his driver. "Oh," the man replied. "This is a sign the priest is coming. " Forty-two years later another Catholic community prepares to welcome Sullivan as its shepherd. On Feb. 12 he will be installed as the eighth bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Camden, a stretch of six counties - rural, suburban, and urban - nearly as foreign to him as the Dominican hills once were.

U.S. leads snub of telecom rules DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - A disappointed American delegation led a Western snub of a U.N. telecommunications treaty Thursday after rivals, including Iran and China, won support for provisions interpreted as endorsing greater government control of the Internet. The unraveling of the conference displayed the deep ideological divide at the 193-nation gathering in Dubai, where envoys grappled with the first revisions of global telecom codes since 1988 - years before the dawn of the Internet age. A Western bloc led by a powerhouse U.S. delegation sought to stop any U.N. rules on cyberspace, fearing they could squeeze web commerce and open the door for more restrictions and monitoring by authoritarian regimes that already impose wide-ranging clampdowns.
