churches will no longer host sunday mass. it's in response to a decline in people heading to church is planning major changes for siouxland ... dozens of churches will no longer host it's in response to heading to church and fewer priests trying to take churches. abc9 news anchor has more about impact. father lingle says, "simply put, we have too many sunday masses in too many places that are too sparcly attended." father brent lingle tells me leading up to thursday's announcement, he's been praying for peace for the diocese he serves. but, he knows changes are neccessary to navigate the decreasing number of priests and also declining numbers of people they're serving. father lingle, "i look at my brother priests who are facing retirement age and i know they work hard and i know we're spending more time in our cars than we are doing ministry, so i'm actually excited about the process because as we look forward, i think it's going to revitalize our ministries as priests." the hope for a

led the sioux city catholic diocese to formulate a proposal they're calling "ministry 2025." in the next nine years, the diocese expects to have 31 available priests... down from the close to 60 today. in an effort to serve the people and not burn out clergy, the diocese is proposing the consolidation of sioux city's 108 parishes to 67. in sioux city, no churches will close. here's a look at the four propsed sioux city parishes: sacred heart, holy cross, which would include blessed sacrament and st. michael, the cathedral, including st. boniface and st. joseph, and mater dei, which would include immaculate conception and nativity. using mater dei as an example, both would still offer mass, with the same priest and associate clergy serving both churches. but, in the rural areas of the diocese, things would look a little different, with 40 parishes being transitioned to oratory status. those buildings would not longer host mass, but still be available for wedding and funerals. father lingle hopes that will give priests more time with the congregations they serve... and also keep churches full. father lingle says, "if you look at the millenial generation, they're not interested in walking into a church with empty pews. if they walk into a parish and you see life, you see vibrant literagies, you see parish programs, they're more likely to connect themselves with that parish and be part of it." still he knows this will be hard, especially for some communities built around the church. father brent lingle,

says, "i know it's not going to be easy for everyone to accept everything in that proposal, but i think if we look at it as people of faith and understand that our main priority is our relationship with christ and the church, it puts it in perspective." lukas changes under the proposed plan would take
