Boston archdiocese drops suit on taxes for idle church property

April 23, 2010

The Boston archdiocese has quietly withdrawn a lawsuit seeking a judgment against the town of Scituate for imposing $200,000 in property taxes for a parish that is not currently in use. The town has argued that the property of St. Frances Cabrini parish, which has been closed, is subject to taxation because it is not being used for religious purposes. The archdiocese says that it will continue to argue in favor of a religious exemption before a state tax panel.
