The Archdiocese of Chicago announced this week the development of several new parish groupings as part of the "Renew My Church" plan.
The archdiocese announced the decision March 9 and 10. The plan is to combine 13 parishes into five clusters, which will minister to regions south of Chicago.
On Tuesday, the archdiocese said the parishes St. Benedict, St. Walter, and St. Peter Claver Mission will join together under a new parish name and be pastored by Monsignor Dennis Lyle. The schools of St. Walter and St. Benedict will be combined for the next school year, but carry out education on the two campuses.
The archdiocese also stated that St. Stanislaus Bishop & Martyr parish will join the St. Christopher and St. Damian grouping, which takes place at the St. Donatus Parish, and is pastored by Fr. Diego Cadavid.
