Boston group appeals to Pope to stop parish closings

Catholic World News - October 19, 2010

The leader of a self-styled group seeking to prevent parish closings in the Boston archdiocese has made a personal appeal to Pope Benedict.

Peter Borre of the Council of Parishes delivered a letter to the Pope into the hands of a member of the Swiss Guard, and told the Boston Globe he had been assured that his appeal would be “routed to a top Vatican official.” The Council of Parishes, which has fought to prevent the closing of nine disputed parishes in the Boston archdiocese, has already exhausted all canonical appeals.
