Archdiocese Announces Parish Mergers, Congers And Nyack Combine

The Archdiocese of New York announced the final decisions for the 16 proposed parish mergers which have been under deliberation by the planning board for over a year and a half. Cardinal Timothy Dolan consulted with the Making All Things New advisory committee, who were put to work honestly reviewing each parish and offering their input regarding the decision. The resulting 14 newly formed parishes come from 31 who have merged throughout the New York Boroughs as well as Dutchess, Rockland, and Westchester counties.

In Rockland County, Saint Ann’s in Nyack will merge with the newly designated parish church, Saint Paul in Congers, with masses and sacraments to continue at Saint Ann’s. Cardinal Dolan said, “For too long we have been in the business of maintaining buildings and structures that were established in the 19th and early 20th centuries to meet the needs of the people of that time, but which are not necessary to meet the needs of the Church and its people as it exists today.” Parishioners can expect implementation to begin August 1 with transition teams set to assist parishes with the move from moving mass and sacraments to one building.
