I Wrote this story 10 years ago as St. Ann’s Church celebrated its 150th birthday under the cloud of a threat by the Catholic Church to close the church. Their excuse for the closure has been the high costs of making repairs to the massive old building, which they say cannot be justified by a dwindling congregation membership. Parishioners and concerned citizens took their fight to keep the church open all the way to the Pope but came up short.
