According to the Utica Observer Dispatch no churches in Herkimer County will be closed under the diocese's new reorganization plan.

There is a troubling "Details on the status of a ninth Herkimer County church, St. Joseph’s in West Winfield, were not available," in the story, but I think that has more to do with Fr. Healey's health. We are already linked with the Richfield Springs church, and there was talk of linking to a third, so I suspect we're safe-ish.

The most important part is that it looks like they aren't closing St. Joseph's.

I wanted to go to Mass this morning, in large part to find out what the decision was, but the snowfall overnight put that out of reach.

Still, I am optimistic.

We're going to have to shanghai as many folks as we can who are willing to hit Mass some Sunday and sing the heck out of that church.
