Our Lady of Czestochowa (personal parish) 

As a sign of commitment to the pastoral care of the Polish ethnic community, Our Lady of Czestochowa will need to follow all policies of the Archdiocese of Detroit. In addition, the parish will need to participate in the vicariate process and all archdiocesan activities as well as follow through on implementing Together in Faith, Phase Two. If the Society of Christ religious order commits to continuing to pastor Our Lady of Czestochowa, it will become a cluster partner of St. Florian, Hamtramck (Genesis Vicariate). These parishes are to develop a plan to cluster to be submittedto the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. The cluster plan should be implemented when a current pastor is no longer available, if a replacement is not available to be assigned, or when either parish begins to experience a net operating deficit. This may result in short term, temporary administrators assigned, or a more permanent solution. If the Society of Christ should leave Our Lady of Czestochowa for any reason, Our Lady of Czestochowa is to identify another Polish personal parish with which to become cluster partners.

SS. Cyril and Methodius (personal parish) and St. Lucy (personal parish) 

In early 2012, SS. Cyril and Methodius (Slovak) and St. Lucy Croatian, (South Oakland Vicariate, Planning Group Two) are to move forward as cluster partners and develop a cluster plan to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. The cluster plan should be implemented when a current pastor is no longer available, if a replacement is not available to be assigned or when either parish begins to experience a net operating deficit. Plans should commence with models for initial collaboration and include contingency plans for programming, outreach and administration, for clustering/merging the parishes, and/or closing buildings and planning for the sale of property. This may result in short term, temporary administrators assigned, or a more permanent solution.

St. Ephrem and St. Jane Frances de Chantal

In early 2012, St. Ephrem and St. Jane Frances de Chantal are to move forward as cluster partners and develop a cluster plan to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. The cluster plan should also incorporate St. Blase (Planning Group Three) as a collaboration partner. The cluster plan should be implemented when a current pastor is no longer available, if a replacement is not available to be assigned, or when any of these parishes begin to experience a net operating deficit. Plans should commence with models for initial collaboration and include contingency plans for programming, outreach and administration, for clustering/merging the parishes, and/or closing buildings and planning for the sale of property. This may result in short term, temporary administrators assigned, or a more permanent solution.

St. Matthias and St. Paul of Tarsus

In early 2012, St. Matthias and St. Paul of Tarsus are to move forward as colaboration partners, develop plans for evaluating programs and determining areas for collaboration to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012, so that upon the need for implementation of a cluster, the parishes will have already developed relationships. A cluster plan should be implemented when a current pastor is no longer available, if a replacement is not available to be assigned, or when either parish begins to experience a net operating deficit. This may result in short term, temporary administrators assigned, or a more permanent solution.

St. Michael and St. Ronald

In early 2012, St. Michael and St. Ronald (Planning Group Three) are to move forward as cluster partners and develop a cluster plan to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. The cluster plan should be implemented when a current pastor is no longer available, if a replacement is not available to be assigned, or when either parish begins to experience a net operating deficit. Plans should commence with models for initial collaboration and include contingency plans for programming, outreach and administration, for clustering/merging the parishes, and/or closing buildings and planning for the sale of property. This may result in short term, temporary administrators assigned, or a more permanent solution.
