All Saints Parish
LE MARS – Unification continues for two Plymouth County churches with the announcement of a new name.
The past month, adult parishioners from the two Catholic churches were given an opportunity to vote on a new name. The only requirement – the new name could not be used by any other Catholic church in the diocese.
“The new name, All Saints Parish, is inclusive of both St. James and St. Joseph Churches,” said Father Kevin Richter, pastor of the newly-formed All Saints Parish. “The new name also invites us to reflect on all of the lives of the saints – not just one in particular.”
Father Richter explained each site will retain its name to specify location for various activities.
“For example,” he said. “All Saints Parish will sponsor adult education during Advent, which will be held at St. James Church on even weekends and St. Joseph on odd weekends.”
The implementation of this unification of St. James and St. Joseph Churches into the new All Saints Parish will formally begin in September. Details will be announced in the following months.
The newly unified parish already shares the following:
