Regarding SS. Simon and Jude Parish

On September 14, 2023, Archbishop Allen Vigneron issued two decrees concerning Saints Simon and Jude Parish. The first causes the parish to cease being so. The second decree relegates Saints Simon and Jude Church to secular but not unbecoming use; that is, decommissioned as a church. The decisions in the decrees take effect on October 2, 2023. A certified copy of the decrees may be obtained from the Moderator of the Priests In Solidum, Father Shafique Masih.
