pastoral planning. a years-worth of work yielded "ministry 2025", a plan to strengthen and sustain the of the diocese. but, changes will be madef "we understand that the change is going to be difficult," lingle said. 40 of the 108 parishes in the diocese will be closed in july "simply put, we have too many sunday masses in too many places that are too sparsely populated," lingle said. "the impact on sioux city's eight parishes will be minimal," said matt breen.
