Parish Merger Update

The three names with the most votes for submission to the Archbishop are: Mary Queen of the Apostles, Our Lady of the Valley, and Saint Raphael the Archangel Note: Clarification on the designation of “Catholic Church” at the end of the name refer to the universal Catholic Church. This distinguishes us from other denominations such as locally St Paul Lutheran or St John UCC. In my letter to the Archbishop, I have asked him to discern if using “Catholic Parish” might be better suited to avoid confusion with the church building’s name of Sts. Peter and Paul Church.
