Closed Church May Be Saved

An agreement is being announced for a  possible transfer of the Mater Dolorosa church in Holyoke from the  Catholic Diocese of Springfield. 

Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse and  Springfield Bishop Mitchell Rozanski will be involved in the  negotiations. 

A hearing that was scheduled for Monday night to make the  historic church a single-building historic district was cancelled after  the announcement was made. 

Former parishioners have wanted the church  preserved, while the diocese wanted it demolished.
