About Us

Due to the reduced availability of Catholic priests to serve individual parish in the United States, many parish parishes across the country are "linking". That is, a priest is assigned to serve multiple parishes, and those parishes cooperatively work together in a concept called a linkage. They may simple share the service of the assigned priest, or may take it much futher almost to the point of merger of the parishes.

In 2000 the parishes of All Saints Denmark and St. James Cooperstown, along with Holy Trinity New Denmark, a mission parish of All Saints since the early 1900's, entered into a linkage status. Fr. Colombo was assigned to the linkage. In 2004, St. Joseph Kellnersville joined the linkage and in 2009 St. Mary's Glenmore/Stark joined. (Please see the our Linkage History for more background)

As the linkage grew, more resources were assigned as Sacramental Ministers and Pastoral Associates. Ministries such as Adult Enrichment, Youth Ministry, and RCIA, perhaps too large an undertaking for any one parish, were formed under the linkage. Other functions and operations, such as the quarterly newsletter, the weekly bulletin, and this website, have also formed under the linkage.

As the linkage, and each individual parish, grows and matures, we will continue to work together to further fulfil God's destiny for each of us.
