Town Meeting to Decide Fate of St. James Property Tonight

Town Meeting will vote tonight whether to make the purchase of 900 Worcester St. from the Archdiocese of Boston.

The meeting that will decide whether Wellesley can officially move forward with the purchase of the church property is tonight.

Town Meeting will convene at 7:30 p.m. at the auditorium.

The town tentatively agreed  at 900 Worcester St. from the Archdiocese of Boston for $3.8 million in March.

The Special Town Meeting warrant contains five articles. Two deal with St. James, two deal with pond management (one specific to Morses Pond) and one is administrative.

The church has been closed since 2006, but parishioners have held a vigil there since the church shut its doors. This group has the Vatican's decision to uphold the Archdiocese's decision to keep the church closed.

First GROW the church and all else will follow ABUNDANTLY. It is the faithful that needs to grow the church, which means the whole community of Wellesley needs to put God first, blessings WILL follow. If Wellesley makes the righteous choice, a clear message will be sent to the RCAB, yes, but more importantly to God and ABUNDANT Blessings will follow. Trust. In line with Roger Babsons' beliefs, I believe the decline in the DEVELOPMENT and attendance of church leads to the decline in the moral state of our society. The RCAB might need to receive a message loud and clear from the Wellesley faithful.
