Diocese of Manchester

Manchester NH State Rep. Fran Wendelboe is trying to raise $10,000 to take her case to the Apostolic Signatura after The Congregation of the Clergy upheld Bishop John McCormack’s decision to merge three New Hampshire parishes. Patrick McGee, a spokesman for the Diocese of Manchester, has said the decision to merge the churches was needed to deal with the serious shortage of priests and the movement of New Hampshire Catholics from urban to suburban parishes.
