"A Massachusetts judge ordered parishioners of the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church to end their 11-year protest vigil and vacate the shuttered Roman Catholic church Thursday. However, the Friends of St. Frances, a group that has been occupying the Scituate church every day since 2004, said they are not going anywhere. They intend to ask the state court to stay the ruling pending an appeal. ... St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church was among dozens of parishes closed as part of a controversial plan to restructure Boston's Archdiocese's debt. Opponents had said the closures were the archdiocese's way of paying for clergy sex-abuse settlements, a charge the church has repeatedly denied. The archdiocese blamed the closures on falling attendance, a priest shortage and financial problems." (05/15/15)
