Some Catholic parishes in Wyandotte will be merged and one will be shuttered under a plan announced Monday by Archbishop Allen Vigneron.
According to a report issued by the church:
- Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Stanislaus Kostka are to develop a plan to merge. The merger plan is to be submitted no later than June 30. Given the original canonical status of both St. Stanislaus Kostka and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the newly merged parish will be a Polish personal parish.
- St. Elizabeth, St. Joseph, and St. Patrick are to develop a two-phase merger plan. The first phase calls for St. Elizabeth to merge with St. Joseph, resulting in the closure of St. Elizabeth, no later than June 30. The second phase calls for the new St. Joseph parish to develop a plan to merge with St. Patrick no later than June 30, 2013.
