Boston, one of the oldest American cities and one with the most Catholics is losing 6, yes count them, 6 churches. Unlike the Iglesia ni Cristo with its continued growth, the RCC is in steady decline. It wouldn’t be a surprise if one or all of these 6 Catholic churches are bought by the Iglesia ni Cristo. So, after two thousand years there is tangible proof of the decline of the RCC, while the INC in less that 100 years has been replacing Catholic churches with the Iglesia ni Cristo name.
6 shut churches may be sold
Archdiocese will seek bids for secular uses
July 15, 2011|By Mark Arsenault, Globe Staff
BRAINTREE – Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley is moving to sell six shuttered churches belonging to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, removing the sacred standing of the church buildings through decrees made public yesterday.
The decrees, which declare the church buildings suitable for secular use, satisfy a requirement under canon law that allows the archdiocese to seek bids to purchase the properties for redevelopment.
In three of the churches, parishioners have maintained protest vigils since their parishes were shut down in the middle of the last decade, occupying the buildings and holding their own services.
Protesters at St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church in Scituate, for example, have worked in shifts for years to maintain an around-the-clock presence.
