SS. Andrew and Benedict and St. Mary Magdalen 

In early 2012, the already clustered parishes of SS. Andrew and Benedict and St. Mary Magdalen are to begin to develop plans for collaborating in ways that would ease their transition to merge. These collaboration plans are to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. In addition, SS. Andrew and Benedict and St. Mary Magdalen, while remaining a cluster, will develop a merger plan to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than December 31, 2013. This plan will be implemented upon the loss of charter school income in either parish and/or upon the retirement or reassignment of a pastor if a replacement is not available.

Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Francis Xavier 

In early 2012, through joint parish council meetings of the already clustered parishes of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Francis Xavier, a plan to merge will be developed to be implemented no later than June 30, 2012. The merger plan will include St. Francis Cemetery, which will be the responsibility of the newly merged parish.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (personal parish) and St. Stanislaus Kostka

In early 2012, the already clustered parishes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Stanislaus Kostka are to develop a plan to merge. The merger plan is to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. Given the original canonical status of both St. Stanislaus Kostka and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the newly merged parish will be a Polish personal parish.

St. Elizabeth, St. Joseph (Wyandotte), and St. Patrick

In early 2012, the already clustered parishes of St. Elizabeth, St. Joseph, and St. Patrick are to develop a two phase merger plan. The first phase should be for St. Elizabeth to merge with St. Joseph, resulting in using only the St. Joseph site. The resulting merged parish will then develop a plan to merge with St. Patrick. The first phase of the plan is to be completed by June 30, 2012, with completion of the second merger by June 30, 2013.
