Due to these three principle events the Archdiocese of New Orleans announced today numerous closings.
It must be an administrative nightmare to handle all that turn over.
These churches will all be closed by December 31, 08. It’s always sad to see any church close its doors. I hope that diocese like ours will be able to purchase some of the art work at these wonderful buildings. I really wish we could simply pick up some of these and relocate them to areas which need new buildings.
Heck ours was only built 5 years ago and we’ll need another parish within 5 years.
Good bye faithful servants you served a great purpose. I hope whomever takes you over will put you to a good purpose.
