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
