Sure the TLM home was moved to Mary Immaculate of Lourdes in Newton.
The TLM community I'm talking about was moved to the Boston cathedral. Now, even if they had been granted their own building, the closing down of an old church that was magnificent, and which only had financial troubles due to admitted mismanagement by the priest, is very upsetting.
By the way... I read that the FSSP offered to buy this church (Holy Trinity (German)), but the archdiocese still prefers to put it up for sale to people who might put it to profane use. It is a terrible thing what is happening to our sacred buildings - first their altars were ripped off and now they are being sold away. I still have hope that this particular case will end well, though.

Maybe my standards are low from the bludgeoning but I'll settle for a reverent Mass, OF, EF I don't care, while I certainly have my preferences. What is important is that the proper respect is shown to our creator... I think that's why the SSPX is so popular, the reverence. Sorry folks just thinking out loud.
