Save yet another parish that will be demolished!

It's a shame. Unfortunately this sort of thing happens all too often. A church is closed due to decreasing membership or serious debt, and then it is bulldozed and the land sold.  No one who could afford the land would want to buy a church building, but the diocese can make a lot of money if they're selling a large, clear piece of land in the middle of an urban area.  These structures are beautiful- even people who aren't religious recognize that churches (especially Catgolic and Anglican ones) are some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Sadly, some seem to care more about money than about preserving what is beautiful, what elevates the soul to contemplate holy things, and what reminds us that the Church didn't begin in the mid-20th century.
