Same thing is happening in Cleveland, Ohio in the US. There has been a "down-sizing" (for lack of a better word) in the diocese of Cleveland, from decreasing population, lack of monetary support, and so on. Bishop Richard Lennon has been taking at least a modicum of flack about his choices for what churches get the financial ax (boo-hoo!), but most of the fooforaw in the local news has disappeared at this point.

Would that this were a general trend!
