Waterloo Catholics planning to lose a priest

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Catholics in Waterloo are preparing to lose one of their four priests in reorganization but all four parishes should remain open.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/18QjbgAhttp://bit.ly/18QjbgA ) the change will be made whenever an opening is creating by a retiring or reassigned priest.

The consolidation plans are being drafted now so the area will be ready.

Monsignor Lyle Wilgenbusch says the Archdiocese of Dubuque hasn't been able to attract enough new priests to replace retiring ones.

So it's common in the area to have one priest serving two or more parishes.

The Waterloo parishes already cooperate and share an adult faith formation director and a website.
