Philadelphia archdiocese announces parish-merger plans
Catholic World News - June 03, 2013
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennyslvania, has announced planned to merge dozens of parishes, as part of a sweeping reorganization plan.
“It is hoped that the result will be revitalized parishes throughout the Archdiocese that are better equipped to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of future generations,” the archdiocese announced as it unveiled the merger plans, which are the result of a study that began in 2011. A new study, planning mergers in other parishes, will begin later this year.
