Archdiocese raised $93.8 million from parish consolidation, report shows

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston has raised $93.8 million in a reorganization project started nearly nine years ago that included the closing or merger of 76 parishes, according to a financial report released Friday.

As of June of last year, the sale of parish property had brought in $73.1 million since July 2004, when the church closings began as part of the restructuring effort, the archdiocese’s 2012 Financial Report says. A large part of the proceeds has been used to support existing parishes, according to the report.
