This morning's article in The Leader shares the good news that Providence Housing Development Corporation has withdrawn its purchase offer for St. Vincent's Church.
The Leader mistakenly reported the sale price "being discussed was $350,000." Actually, PHDC upped their offer to $475,000 after a new appraisal was done.
So now the issue of our church's fate goes back to the facilities and finance councils, according to the article. Originally, the plan was to keep both St. Vincent's and St. Mary's.
May this be a God-given opportunity to come together to heal our parish. What could be better than to commit to keeping our churches and to make sure the necessary repairs and maintenance are done so our parish churches remain for generations to come.
