Boston parish closings

Boston parish closings

(Take this for what it is, a rumor. If you take it for anything else, that’s your fault.)

Sources in the Archdiocese of Boston tell me that Archbishop O’Malley has a list of 30 parishes that he will reveal in December that will be closed. And he will have a list of another 30 parishes that the local communities themselves will have to decide whether to close. Parish consolidations are a fact of life in Boston nowadays. We’ll have to get used to it.
