The Catholic Church of Holy Innocents, built in 1870, is threatened with closure by the Archdiocese of NY. There is no reason for it to be closed, as it has a vibrant community life and NO financial debt. It is also the only parish in NY that offers a daily Tridentine Mass.

Hello Blanche. Nice to meet you. We have the same problem here in Australia. Our "old" parish xyz south is closing down. One of my sons was married there and most recently one of my grandsons was baptised. Many great memories of happy times there. When it closes, apparently there has been a huge drop off in parishioners There is another parish nearby xyz north so folks will have to go up there It is sad I agree.

I signed it and thanks for informing us about it. God only knows that if it were to close, it may suffer the same fate as that Syracuse Church: being turned into a mosque.

Blanche, thanks for your concern & efforts. I have been to Holy Innocents countless times in my travels around the US & would be stunned to lose this treasure; it is one of the churches I always seek out when in the NYC area. I can't even begin to understand why Cardinal Dolan would consider such a misguided move. Surely he is receiving & listening to poor advice. Petition signed & sent.
