'We would love the community to join us as we say goodbye'

Last weekend, a neighbor of Mary Help of Christians on East 12th Street said that the church was having its final mass last Sunday. That was incorrect information. Parishioner Josephine left us a message saying that the last mass will be celebrated there today at 11:30.

Per Josephine: "We would love the community to join us as we say goodbye."

The church will be making way for some sort of yet-specified new development.

Didn't know it was their last service. I walked by around 1:00 (on my way home from a different church) and saw a big crowd and went in. Service was over but the church was full. They were handing out roses and serving food, and people were taking pictures of the saints in glassed-in niches in the sanctuary walls. Most churches would be deeply grateful for such a large and devoted congregation.
