Three parishes in Richmond, Indiana to become one

Original source

COLUMBUS—Speaking on Feb. 4 at St. Bartholomew Church in Columbus before Catholics from across central and southern Indiana, Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin announced decisions that will affect 31 parishes in the Bloomington, Connersville and Seymour deaneries…

In addition, the three parishes in Richmond—Holy Family, St. Andrew and St. Mary—will be combined to create a single new parish with a new name.

The churches of the three current parishes will be maintained. The decision regarding the parishes will also not affect St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School and Seton Catholic High School, both in Richmond.

All of the decisions will be effective on July 1. They were the result of a 15-month involvement of the deaneries’ pastoral leaders and representatives of its lay members in the Connected in the Spirit planning process.
