23 Catholic parishes consolidating in South Eastern South Dakota this summer

Posted: Updated:

Some big changes are coming to Eastern South Dakota's Catholic community.

Numbers are decreasing in rural churches across the diocese; with that comes the need for change and consolidation.

Beginning July 1st, 23 parishes will merge.

Diocese leaders say the changes are put in place to protect the wheel being of priest covering the large area-including one that drives over an hour to lead services.

The changes will slowly be implemented throughout the summer.
