Faithful in transition

NEWTON

Two devout Catholic communities. Two groups of the faithful in transition.

The Archdiocese of Boston's Latin Mass community is coming to Newton, thanks to a decision by church officials that will close their current home church, Holy Trinity Parish in the South End. The archdiocese's Korean Catholics, meanwhile, have been told that they may have to vacate their current home at St. Philip Neri Parish in Waban.

Today's Globe West section takes a closer look at these two communities of faith. An audio slideshow on Boston.com also gives you a flavor of how they worship.
