What would you do if your bishop wanted to close your parish?

February 10, 2012
This week on Perspectives Weekly, we'll be looking at the contentious issue of parish closures and amalgamations. What would you do if your bishop wanted to close your parish?
Host Kris Dmytrenko and our guests Fr. James Mallon, pastor of Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax and director of the John Paul II Media Institute, and Fr. Jim Roche, Episcopal Vicar for the Diocese of London, Ontario, talk about their experiences with the closure of parishes and explain why this can sometimes be a good solution for the Catholic faithful.
Join us for this discussion, tonight on Perspectives Weekly at 7 and 11pm ET / 8pm PT. In the meantime, take part in the discussion on Facebook.
