Faithful East Boston Parishioners Announce Christmas Day Service for Defunct Church.

(EAST BOSTON, MA) In East Boston, Our Lady of Mount Carmel parishioners have not given up the fight. After the Archdiocese of Boston shuttered the parish in 2003, faithful parishioners had taken over the church, by repairing, raising money, and holding weekly prayer communion services. More recently the Archdiocese had changed the locks and officially barred parishioners from entering the Church.

Local hotel, Embassy Suites graciously offers the parishioners space every Sunday for their prayer service. In fact last Saturday the Embassy hosted a Christmas Party for them.

On Christmas Day the parishioners will gather at 10AM at the Embassy for one of the Catholic Church's most holy and symbolic events.

Although the building is closed, their spirits are not. The fight continues as parishioners hope that the Christmas Season brings upon them a miracle to reopen their beloved Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

The parishioners hope is to persuade the Archdiocese of Boston to follow other cities where Churches are kept in tact and allowed to stay as places of worship for special occasions.
