Historic Parish Closed and Sold to the Highest Bidder
In one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the city of St. Paul, this historic church was closed and sold. My mother was Baptized here. A Byzantine-Romanesque gem of immeasurable beauty and value that rivals anything like it I have ever seen anywhere. Built in 1927. It could have been given to the Institute of Christ the King. Notice the cross was knocked off the tower and front facade? It makes you wonder who is in charge?
Today it is a German school. The Archdiocese foolishly let this one go. If the lawyers running the Archdiocese had been a bit more strategic, they could have leased this Como landmark to a charter or Montessori school and made big bucks. I also noticed the charming rectory and convent were torn down and are now parking lots.
