springfield diocese http://wamc.org en Chicopee Church to Hold Masses Again http://wamc.org/post/chicopee-church-hold-masses-again <p></p><p>A Roman Catholic church in Chicopee closed by the Springfield Diocese in 2009 is scheduled to start celebrating a weekly Mass again a year after the Vatican determined that local church officials could not sell the building.&nbsp;</p><p>The diocese announced Wednesday that a weekly Mass would be celebrated at St. Patrick starting Dec. 1.</p><p>The diocese stressed that the decision does not mean that St. Patrick would re-open as a distinct parish. St. Patrick remains a subsidiary of Holy Name of Jesus Parish.</p> Thu, 15 Nov 2012 05:00:00 +0000 Lucas Willard 52027 at http://wamc.org
