Catholic churches merging in Henry

Posted by wlpo on June 26, 2014

More catholic churches are merging in the Illinois Valley.

As of Tuesday, St. Mary and St. Joseph Churches in Henry will merge into one parish named after St. John XXIII. The St. Mary’s building will become the parish home.

Bishop Daniel Jenky announced the name change the same day St. John XXIII was made a saint by the current pope. St. John XXIII led the catholic church between 1958 and 1963.

Father Tom Mizeur will still be the catholic pastor in Henry after the merger.
