SAGINAW- More parishes are coming together as new communities with new parish names effective July 1, 2014. Each parish submitted a list of three proposed new parish names to the Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw. In many cases, the names were voted on by parishioners and Bishop Cistone attempted to grant the top name choice as often as possible.

A list of all new parish names is followed by the names of the parish communities joining together in the merger. All parish communities will have one designated parish church. This is the main church where regularly scheduled Masses and sacraments of initiation, such as Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist will be celebrated for all members of the parish community. Masses also will be celebrated each weekend in each of the additional churches. In churches designated for occasional use, regularly scheduled Masses will no longer be celebrated after a determined date, however, permission may be granted for weddings or funerals of former parishioners.
