From the The New York Times
The nine churches in Manhattan that are essentially closing (that I have previously mentioned in this blog) are as follows:
- Church of the Holy Agony
- Church of the Holy Rosary
- Church of the Nativity
- Church of Our Lady of Peace
- Our Lady of the Scapular and St. Stephen
- Church of St. Elizabeth of Hungary
- Church of St. Joseph (Chinatown)
- Church of St. Lucy
- Church of St. Stephen of Hungary
And here is a complete Archdiocese list of churches that will be merging where both churches will remain open.
The twelve churches in Manhattan that are merging to create six new parishes are as follows: (each of these churches will remain open for the regular celebration of Masses, etc.)
- St. Peter + Our Lady of the Rosary = new parish.
- Our Lady of Victory + St. Andrew = new parish.
- Old St. Patrick's + Most Precious Blood = new parish.
- Church of the Guardian Angel + St. Columba = new parish.
- Church of the Holy Cross + St. John the Baptist = new parish.
- Our Saviour + Chapel of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary = new parish.
And finally, here is that first list of nine churches closing from above, but below indicating which church they are merging with:
- Holy Agony [will merge with St. Cecelia Church]
- Holy Rosary [will merge with St. Paul (Spanish Harlem)]
- Church of the Nativity [will merge with Most Holy Redeemer]
- Our Lady of Peace [will merge with St. John the Evangelist]
- Our Lady of the Scapular & St. Stephen [will merge with Our Saviour]
- St. Elizabeth of Hungary [will merge with St. Monica Church]
- St. Joseph (Chinatown) [will merge with Transfiguration]
- Church of St. Lucy [will merge with St. Ann Church]
- St. Stephen of Hungary [will merge with St. Monica Church]
Cheers to The New York Times for such great coverage of these events. Here's a new slideshow showing the aftermath at some of these holy houses of worship:
