WEST HAVEN – Saint Lawrence Church, the oldest church in the city, will close due to high repair costs, Reverend José Mercado, pastor of Saint John XXIII parish, told parishioners.
An inventory of all the buildings on the St. Lawrence campuses on Main Street and St. Louis Church on Bull Hill Lane revealed that it would cost over $ 2 million to make all the necessary repairs, but St. Lawrence Church, which has a badly leaking roof, as well as broken stone and masonry, accounted for the greatest cost. The church was built in 1903, according to city valuation records.
