Indianapolis-area parish changes in works

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Catholic archbishop is set to announce changes for parishes in the city and some neighboring counties.

Church officials say Archbishop Joseph Tobin will discuss the changes during a news conference Wednesday morning at Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral.

The archdiocese said the changes come after discussions among 47 parishes in Indianapolis and neighboring Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson and Morgan counties.

Similar archdiocese announcements in the past few years have led to closing or consolidations of numerous parishes in southeastern Indiana and the Terre Haute area, in part because of the declining number of priests.
