(BROWNSTOWN) - Brownstown's nearly 80-year-old Catholic parish will cease to exist come July 1.

The Seymour Tribune reports that the decision to consolidate Our Lady of Providence with St. Ambrose in Seymour was announced Thursday morning by Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin during a news conference at St. Bartholomew Church in Columbus.

Tobin, the head of the Indianapolis Archdiocese, said the merger of the two churches doesn't necessarily mean the church in Brownstown can't be become a chapel and used for church services and other activities in the future if the parish council decides to do so.
