In the section "The building" it states that the building was slated for demolition by the archdiocese.

The church building was never slated for demolition by the archdiocese or anyone else. Reports to that effect are in error.

The building suffered from delayed maintenance and it would have cost as much or more to take the building down than to address the maintenance issue. The church building was closed under the guise of "unsafe conditions."

It was reopened in October 1992.
