As of mid-February, 2015, the actual canonical degrees may be printed from this link. On February 13, 2014, the New York Times ran a lengthy article on the delay in public access to the decrees.
List 2 tells that certain churches will be used only on special occasions. The sacraments will not be offered there on a regular basis. August, 2015, is the goal date.
Nativity of Our Blessed Lady, East 233rd Street and Dyre Avenue. The parishioners are directed to Holy Rosary, two miles south. The school remains open.
Visitation, on Van Cortlandt Park South. This parish is merged with St. John's, Kingsbridge. Both Visitation school and St. John's school remain open.
St. Ann, Bainbridge Avenue, near Montefiore Hospital. This parish is merged with St. Brendan on East 206 Street. Both schools, St. Ann and St. Brendan, remain open.
St. Roch, on Wales Avenue, Morrisania. This parish is merged with St. Anselm, Tinton Avenue. Both are architectural masterpieces. The stained glass windows of St. Roch provide color and light; St. Anselm's structure is heavy, dark.
St. Pius V on East 145 Street, Mott Haven, is merged with St. Rita of Cascia to the west.
St. John Vianney, 0.6 mile from the foot of Castle Hill Avenue, is merged with Holy Family at Watson Avenue another 0.6 mile north on Castle Hill Avenue. The Bx22 bus on the avenue has five trips scheduled each hour on Sunday mornings. Some parishioners probably live a distance east or west of the bus stops.
On December 14, 2014, The New York Times printed a list of further closings, a list that resembles this undated document on the archdiocesan website.
St. Joseph on Bathgate Avenue would be merged into St. Simon Stock, 0.7 mile to the north. I note that the 2014 Official Catholic Directory states that St. Joseph parish had 22 students in religious education, while St. Joseph's elementary school across the street had 465 students, a remarkable number, probably as of 2013. The school remains open.
Our Lady of Grace on Bronxwood Avenue would be merged into the parish of Sts. Philip and James. Our Lady of Grace elementary school remains open.
St. Francis of Assisi (Baychester Avenue) and St. Anthony (Wakefield) would be merged into St. Frances of Rome. However, an almost similar arrangement has been the situation for a few years recently, with one pastor tending to three parishes. The school at St. Francis of Assisi would remain open. The small church is attached to the school.
Those are the ten mergers in which one parish is effectively closed for regular worship.
List 1 explains four pairs of mergers in which both churches remain open. The one with the asterisk is designated the parish church. I am uncertain about sacramental records, but I suspect that by August, 2015, the priests and the records will be moved to the church with the asterisk.
*St. Margaret of Cortona and St. Gabriel, both on the highland called Riverdale.
*St. Jerome and St. Luke, both on East 138th Street, Mott Haven.
*Holy Family, Watson Avenue, and Blessed Sacrament, Beach Avenue.
*Our Lady of the Assumption, Pelham Bay, and St. Mary Star of the Sea, City Island.
The canonical decrees that were finally released in early February, 2015, have two pages of standard language (a common narrative of events, ignoring particular situations), plus a single page of what-will-happen and where-the-records-will-go. Allow me to note a few surprises:
1) That St. Roch is a personal parish. As a result St. Anselm does not pick up new territory.
2) Mergers announced in December are not included in February's list of decrees:
St. Joseph (Bathgate Ave.), St Francis of Assisi (Baychester Ave.), St. Anthony (Wakefield), Our Lady of Grace, Sts. Philip and James.
