St. Louis, MO –

Catholics who speak Spanish as a first language will soon have another parish to call home in St. Louis.

Archbishop Raymond Burke says the recently-announced parish closings and consolidations will better reflect changing populations.

One change will be the creation of a parish in south City and another in north County that focus on native Spanish-speakers.

And as KWMU's Tom Weber reports, it probably won't be the last change for that segment of the local Catholic population.
