Church to announce St. Gabriel parish closing in Brighton

Church to announce St. Gabriel parish closing - The Boston Globe

The Catholic Archdiocese of Boston plans to announce this weekend the closing of a parish in Brighton, St. Gabriel, that has been on the brink of closing for months, since the religious order that oversaw the parish announced it was pulling out of the region.

The closing of St. Gabriel, which is owned by and located adjacent to Caritas St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, is one of several closings taking place as the archdiocese wraps up some of the loose ends of the contentious parish closings process begun in 2004. The parish's programs, including a Spanish-language Mass, will be transferred to the last surviving Catholic church in Brighton, St. Columbkille.
