Recommended Groupings by Parish

The On Mission Commission presented the following Parish Grouping Recommendations to Bishop Zubik on September 7, 2017. These recommendations are not final decisions. A Parish Grouping is a collection of individual parishes in a common geographic area proposed to become one new parish over time. Bishop Zubik will meet monthly from September 14 – December 14, 2017, with his Priest Council to review the Commission’s recommendations and seek their feedback. During this time Bishop Zubik will also consult with the Diocesan Pastoral and Finance Councils. Bishop Zubik will study the feedback as he continues to discern his final decisions regarding the Parish Groupings. The final Parish Groupings will be announced in April 2018. The Parish Groupings will take effect in the fall of 2018. When the Parish Groupings first take effect there will be no immediate parish mergers and no church buildings are closing.
