MERGER OF ST. PATRICK AND OUR LADY OF VICTORY: The Most Rev. David J. Bonnar, Bishop of Youngstown has accepted the recommendation of Rev. Michael Mikstay, pastor of Our Lady of Victory Parish in Andover and St. Patrick Parish in Kinsman, along with his parishioners, to merge the two parishes, effective March 17, 2022. In accordance with Church law, the decision was made after having also heard the advice of the diocese's presbyteral council, which was favorable. Bishop Bonnar had visited the parishes for Holy Mass in February, after which he was invited to a parish meeting where the request was made. In a letter addressed to parishioners this weekend (March 19 and 20), Bishop Bonnar commended parishioners for their initiative, noting that "This effort did not come from the diocese but from your work." He also noted that the request by the two parishes is "a model for living the mission of the Church through collaboration and sharing." He cited the merger as an example of parishioners embracing the diocese's ongoing regional pastoral planning and Pope Francis' vision of a Church driven by what Pope Francis calls a "missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church's customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channeled for the evangelization of today's world rather than for her self-preservation" (final quote from Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel, #27 - quoted in Bishop Bonnar's letter to parishioners). The parish will now include both church buildings, which will continue to retain their names, and Bishop Bonnar has invited parishioners to recommend a new name for the parish to him, reflecting "one parish community with a shared mission."
