The Diocese of Youngstown Parish Reconfiguration Plan, which began in 2008 and was promulgated by Bishop George V. Murry, S.J., in May, 2010, includes parishes which remain as single parishes, collaborative units and merged units.
On May 31, 2012, three churches in Youngstown will merge with the new name, Our Lady of Sorrows Parish. The churches merging are: St. Matthias, Holy Name of Jesus, and SS. Cyril and Methodius. Currently all three worship sites remain open. The mailing address is 915 Cornell Street, Youngstown, OH 44502.
Other parishes affected by mergers or collaboration will continue to work together until the Diocesan Parish Reconfiguration Plan is complete.
