Churches close as Detroit archdiocese reorganizes

June 10, 2013

The Detroit archdiocese is implementing a series of changes, closing or merging parishes in response of financial constraints and a shortage of priests.

After the changes go into effect the archdiocese will have about 265 parishes: down from 310 a decade ago. In many cases the new merged parishes will continue to use two or more church buildings.
