"There's going to be some letting go, but sometimes we have to let go to go forward."

The above quote is from Rev. Michael P. Jacques, pastor of St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, regarding The Archdiocese of New Orleans and its closing 7 of its parishes, temporarially merging about 20, and consolodating or changing many of its 107 schools. This is going to be a tough step for many New Orleanians, but like the other changes that are currently being discussed this will be a positive for the long-term health of the Catholic Church in New Orleans.

There has been a lot of media coverage of this story today, you can read about it in the NYTimes or in the Times-Picayune.
