Parishes on the chopping block

Holy Innocents in New York City is apparently on the list to be closed along with St. John the Baptist, which is right across the street from Penn Station, I call it the traveler church and it’s one of the busiest churches I’ve ever seen.  Rocky and I were amazed at how as soon a Mass was over a new crowd of people came in for the next one. 

Holy Innocents is special to me because it is the home of the Shrine of the UnbornMy child’s name is inscribed in their Book of Life so I'm concerned. If these churches have to be closed I hope the art is saved and the buildings destroyed. Seeing Ho;y Innocents  or St. John turned into a nightclub would be too sad.
