Massachusetts parishioners plan one more appeal to keep church open

Parishioners occupying a Massachusetts Catholic church for more than a decade planned one more court appeal to keep the Boston archdiocese from evicting them from parish property.

Jon Rogers, a leader of Friends of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Church, said the group's attorneys plan on Tuesday to file an appeal of a Norfolk County Superior Court judge's decision that sided with the archdiocese in its effort to close the parish and sell the property in the seaside community south of Boston.
