Two Manistee Co. Catholic Churches Becoming Limited Use Facilities

Posted: Updated:

Some changes are in the works for two Catholic churches in Manistee County.

The Diocese of Gaylord says Guardian Angels Church and Saint Mary of Mount Carmel Shrine in Manistee will now be "limited use" facilities.

While this doesn't mean the parishes are closing, they will no longer hold masses or other activities.

 The Diocese will spend the next year trying to figure out how to address the $300,000 in debt and other financial issues facing the parishes.

 For now, all activities, including mass and other meetings, will be held at Saint Joseph Church in Manistee.
