From Eyewitness News:
For decades St. Augustine Church in the Bronx has been a place of great joy and sorrow.
Generations have received communion here, been baptized, married and laid to rest.
But today's Sunday mass will be the last at this site.
"Our hope is to take down the church and rectory and convent and put up affordable housing here and with the money from the housing put up a smaller church across the street next to the school," Rev. Thomas Fenlon said.
Ah, that old gag. Yes, yes, "affordable housing" is what your congregation really needs.
