Omaha Archdiocese Announces Parish's Closure

March 29, 2009

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Omaha Archdiocese has announced it will close 1 of its north Omaha parishes this spring because of declining participation.

The news was shared with St. Richard parishioners on Sunday. About 50 to 75 people attend weekly services there.

In early March, officials announced that St. Richard School would close at the end of the school year because of low enrollment and the troubled U.S. economy.

The church property and buildings will be transferred to a neighboring parish.
