Last fall, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston announced a plan that would see local churches pool resources and on Monday the next step in that plan was released.

A list of pastors for the 21 "Phase Two" collaborative parishes was made public on Monday, with Rev. Phillip B. Earley at the helm of St. Dorothy and St. Thomas in Wilmington.

“We are blessed by the dedication of the priests, parishioners and the deacons and religious who are working together to strengthen our parishes," said Cardinal Sean O'Malley. "I am grateful for the generosity of these pastors as they accept the call to lead the new collaboratives, advancing the mission of evangelization in the Archdiocese of Boston.”

More information on the reorganization, called "Disciples in Mission - A Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese of Boston" can be found on within its own page on the Archdiocese website
