A parish in Georgia needs a larger church. A Catholic diocese in New York has an extra one. Read all about it.
[Fr. David] Dye first asked for blueprints to build a church that would look and feel old. But then the diocese of Buffalo came up with a unique idea for solving their problem of closed and empty parishes. They offered to sell him an entire church if he could move it 900 miles south to Norcross, Ga.
Dye soon discovered the idea could be pulled off for less than half the cost of building a new church from scratch. If his parish can raise $16 million, they'll be able to move St. Gerard's, piece by piece on flatbed trucks.
