St. Michael Consolidation in Streator

Posted by wlpo on July 18, 2010

Reverend Monsignor John Prendergast has sent a letter to Streator parishioners stating that as of July 1, St. Michael the Archangel Parish of Streator is established.  Prendergast will be the new pastor.  With that done, Prendergast says the church can establish new committees and start administrative chores needed to do business.  These actions are phase one of a consolidation plan approved by Bishop Jenky.  The second phase is September 29 when Immaculate Conception, St. Anthony’s, St. Stephen’s and St. Casimir will cease to exist – leaving only St. Michael. St. Stephen’s will remain the sole worship center for the parish until a new church is built.   A feasibility study is planned in the fall, but a new building is at least two years away.
