Closed Church In Clinton Faces Demolition
CLINTON, Mass. (AP) — A century-old former Roman Catholic church in Clinton is scheduled to be torn down.
The former Our Lady of Jasna Gora Church was closed more than two years ago as part of the Worcester Diocese’s parish reconfiguration. It’s been cleared for demolition and is likely to come down within days.
The original church building was constructed in 1913 and was more recently used as the parish hall. The main church building was constructed in the 1960s.
A spokesman for the diocese tells the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that once the building has been torn down, the land will be placed on the market.
Our Lady of Jasna Gora was closed in 2010 when Clinton’s three Catholic parishes were merged into one.
