Catholic Diocese of Saginaw parishes merge, now have new names

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) -  (07/01/14) - Starting Tuesday, more parishes within the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw will merge as new parish communities with new names.

It's part of an on-going effort called "Planning for Tomorrow's Parishes".

Declining attendance is one reason for the down-sizing.

Even though regular mass may not be held at some of the churches, they can still be used for special occasions like funerals and weddings.
