Archdiocese of Philadelphia announces merger of two Olney Catholic Churches

Incarnation of Our Lord (5105 N. 5th Street) will merge with St. Helena (6101 N 5th St) Church and Saint Veronica in Hunting Park by July 1. Last year the Incarnation middle school closed last year and remaining students were given the option to attend nearby St. Helena middle school. The archdiocese’s press statement said Incarnation wasn’t previously on its chopping block but “serious concerns regarding the financial condition” from earlier in the year caused the archdiocese to close the church’s doors. The press statement also stated that Incarnation weekend mass attendance in 2007 was 1210 and fell to 685 by 2011.
