Archdiocese of Newark targets closure Churches

A personal plea:

"Almost all the parishes targeted for closure or merger have strong cores of longtime parishioners. With the right plan and suitable pastors, new energies can come to these urban churches, who have to reach out aggressively. It's been said that Hudson County has a church and a tavern on every block. It would be a shame to leave it to the bars. "
