Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, St. Anthony, and St. Joseph, Erie

In early 2012, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, St. Anthony, and St. Joseph are to begin working on two possible plans:

1. For an in solidum model of parish ministry; and/or,

2. A plan for a three-parish cluster.

Both plans are to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than December 2012. 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. The 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 defict.
