DETROIT (WWJ) – Catholic Archbishop Allen Vigneron confirming Monday what many anticipated, the closure of 2 area parishes by year’s end and many others will be merging made necessary by population shifts and a shortage of priests.

The archdiocese will have 214 parishes remaining by the end of 2012.  Vigneron says two parishes will close outright, while others will merge, reorganize or go through financial reviews to determine their future.
