VIDEO REPORT: Changes coming to Cumberland

Last week, I covered a town meeting in Cumberland regarding the future of parishes in the area. A proposal will be presented to Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien that would unite the parishes into a new faith community with a new name and a single pastoral staff.  Cumberland’s St. Mary, St. Patrick and Ss. Peter and Paul and Cresaptown’s St. Ambrose would continue offering weekend Masses under the plan, while St. Patrick in Mount Savage would become a “station” for funerals, weddings and special liturgies – but no regular Masses.

Much more will be coming in a story in The Catholic Review.  In the meantime, check out this video I put together on the meeting.
