Archdiocese announces recommended parish closures, consolidations

Here is an excerpt form the Archdiocese report concerning the next phase of "Together in Faith;"

• One of three churches that dominate the near-downtown Detroit skyline along I-75 -- Sweetest Heart of Mary, St. Josaphat and St. Joseph near Eastern Market -- should plan to close.

"Ite ad Joseph!"

I no longer live in Detroit, but I am heartbroken over this.

St. Josaphat's is where my Daughter was baptized.
St. Joseph's is where my Daughter went to her first Christmas Mass.
SHM is where my bro-in-law was married.

It is hard to see the AOD make decisions like this based on politics and money. There aren't easy answers here, but the reports are filled with convenient solutions...
