Blessed Sacrament and St. Boniface parishes in Southeast Rochester will be clustering by June of 2011. As you already know, five Northeast Rochester churches will be consolidated down to two by the same time. Fr. Richard Brickler, pastor of St. Boniface, is already over the Diocese of Rochester retirement age of 70. Blessed Sacrament and St. Boniface will be sharing a leader beginning next year.
Here is what is written in the Blessed Sacrament bulletin:
“By the time I finish my eleventh year with you (that is, next June), we will have clustered with Saint Boniface Parish in the South Wedge, and strengthened our partnership with Saint Mary’s Downtown. The Blessed Sacrament/Saint Boniface cluster will share a single pastoral leader, and all three parishes will have a new Mass schedule”
