Cardinal explains archdiocese reorganization in webchat

In his first-ever live webchat on Boston.com on Friday, ­Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Boston, called his new plan to reorganize the archdiocese a strategy for rebuilding rather than downsizing, and said he hoped it would rejuvenate the priesthood.

“If we are going to evangelize well, parishes need to be grouped in a way that resources can be deployed toward outreach, welcoming, and the growth of the church in our archdiocese,” O’Malley said.
