Sarnia, Ontario: Parishioners March to Keep Parish Open. About 100 people marched in front of St. Peter's Basilica in London, ON, in early May to protest the closing of St. Peter's church -- the religious and social centre of Sarnia's Italian community for almost 50 years. About 35 parishes are slated to close or merge to because of the shortage of priests, aging buildings and declining attendance. "The process has been fair and the decisions, which were made after much prayer, deliberation, and consultation, are final," the diocese said. Parishioners are exploring canonical appeal.
