Friends of Saint Benedict Center in Laconia Sun

Contact: C. J. Doyle


The letter to the editor from the Friends of Saint Benedict Center, opposing the demolition of the century old, Gothic Revival, Saint Joseph's Church in Laconia, New Hampshire, was published on August 24th in the Laconia Daily Sun.

FOSBC Communications Director C. J. Doyle commended the Saint Joseph Church Preservation Society for its recent letter calling upon the Diocese of Manchester to revoke its application for a demolition permit, and urged the diocese to end the suffering of parishioners by acceding to their request.

The improvident decision by the troubled, scandal plagued Diocese of Manchester to raze the venerable edifice provoked intense opposition, not only from parishioners, but from Laconia residentselected officials and historic preservationists. The Diocese's application for the demolition permit has now stalled before the city's Heritage Commission.
