Several Roman Catholic churches merging in Schuylkill County

The Diocese of Allentown says several Roman Catholic churches are merging in Schuylkill County.

In Tamaqua, the Saint Jerome and Saints Peter and Paul parishes will join forces to become the Saint John the 23rd Parish.

This begins July 1 and both buildings will continue to be used for worship.

The Roman Catholic churches in Shenandoah and Lost Creek will merge to form the Divine Mercy Parish in the former Annunciation Church building.
