CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has reversed a decision by Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski to merge three parishes in the St. Louis archdiocese.

Ruling in favor of parishioners who had appealed the archbishop’s decision, the Dicastery for the Clergy found no adequate reason for merging the parishes.

The Vatican upheld other decisions that the archbishop had made to merge and close parishes as part of a massive restructuring program.
