Two Catholic chapels in Jersey are closing because not enough people are attending and there is difficulty in recruiting priests.
The two chapels that are closing - Our Lady of the Universe at Millbrook and Ville a L'eveque in Trinity - could be sold to raise money for the Catholic church.
People who go to the chapels in Trinity and Millbrook are being asked to attend other churches in the west of the island.
The churches of St Matthews, The Sacred Heart and St. Bernadettes in the west of the island are taking on the congregations.
Father Peter Glas will be the priest of the three churches.
His role in St. Helier is being taken by Father Michael Marett-Crosby.
"I was a little bit anxious about how people would take it," said Canon Nicholas France.
"I have to say they were incredibly gracious about it and very accepting and trusting."
Two other priests are retiring and Father James Carling is going to the UK.
