CWN Editor's Note: As the Archdiocese of Seattle plans to consolidate 136 parishes into 60 “parish families,” the archdiocese has asked all pastors to resign.

The Partners in the Gospel initiative cites declining Mass attendance, the low number of seminarians, and the “long-term financial sustainability of parishes” as reasons for the consolidation. The Archdiocese of Seattle recently purchased a $2.4-million home for Archbishop Paul Etienne.
