Parish Closures: An Epiphany

The Three Kings arrive and The New York Times revisits a parish closing in 2004.

In Quiet Rebellion, Parishioners Keep Faith by Abby Goodnough examines the 1,533 day-and-counting vigil held by parishioners of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church in Scituate, MA.

Molly Wilson O'Reilly addresses the story on dotCommonweal in her post Peaceful Occupation. The post is followed by a lively forum of 23 comments by the usual suspects and some other voices. Please visit, read, join and comment!

Kudos to the National Desk for not letting this issue fade into oblivion. Now if the City Desk would turn its gaze to struggles in the Archdiocese of New York.
