The head of education for the Boston archdiocese agreed Friday to help find a new school for a boy who was denied acceptance at a Hingham Catholic school because his parents are gay.

Superintendent Mary Grassa O'Neill said in a statement she'd talked with a parent of the 8-year-old boy and "offered to help enroll her child in another Catholic school in the archdiocese."

"We believe that every parent who wishes to send their child to a Catholic school should have the opportunity to pursue that dream," O'Neill said.

One of the boy's mothers said she found O'Neill to be "compassionate" and said she'd apologized. She said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her child from publicity.

She said she has yet to make up her mind whether she'll enroll her son in another Catholic school.
