St. Paul (personal parish)

To strengthen the archdiocesan commitment to the Albanian ethnic community, St. Paul should develop plans to be a cluster or merger partner with Our Lady of Albanians in Southfield, to be implemented upon the retirement, reassignment, or pastoral vacancy of a priest if a replacement is not available to be assigned. This plan is to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012.

The associate/affiliated parish identification determined during Together in Faith, Phase One and outlined in the strategic plan for these parishes is to be reviewed and re-affirmed in early 2012. Every parish should agree to a cluster partner and develop cluster plans to be submitted to the Regional Moderator no later than June 30, 2012. The cluster plans 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 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.
