Members in Europe report that a new stake will be created in northern Italy this September from the Milan Italy Stake. The Milan Italy Stake has grown to 10 wards and 2 branches as several branches have become wards within the past few years. It is unclear whether the new stake will be created from other stakes in northern Italy like the Verona Italy Stake.
The Church in Italy also recently reversed an over decade long era of congregation consolidations. Within the past two months, two new units were organized in Bergamo (Bergamo 3rd Branch) and Rome (Roma 5th Branch). It has been several years or perhaps even a decade since the Church has created a new unit in Italy. Members report that prospects appear good for the organization of additional new wards and branches in the largest cities.
