Vatican turns down appeals on Boston parish closings
CWN - May 17, 2010
The Vatican has rejected a final canonical appeal from a group in the Boston archdiocese that had fought the closing of 10 parishes. The group, the Council of Parishes, has indicated that it may now turn to civil courts in its efforts to prevent the archdiocese from finally shutting down the parishes, which were slated for closing during a major contraction in 2004.
