I was turned on to this story from a blogger responding to my post on the closing of St. James Church in Lakewood, OH. The blogger suggested that the church could possibly be sold and moved like St. Gerard's Church in Buffalo, NY. ...
So, I did a Google search for St. Gerard's Church in Buffalo, NY, and lo and behold, it's a possibility being discussed. (Link to story here.)
As you can guess, there is a lot of controversy regarding the dismantling and moving of this church among those in Buffalo who would like to see the building POTENTIALLY "repurposed" versus those who would like to see the church moved with the GUARANTEE that it would live on in another community.
My vote -- SAVE the building and move it. Otherwise, it may go the way of the wrecking ball.
An amazing story. I wait in anticipation for the outcome.
St. Gerard Church | 1190 E. Delavan Avenue | Buffalo, NY 14215 ... at least for now!
