The church was severely damaged in an arson fire last March.  The congregation has been using  St. Francis Catholic Church on Franklin since then.

 

This Sunday, they'll move their services to their building across the street that they own, that houses the "Famiy Kitchen."

 

Peter Lovering,  the church's senior warden says that work is finished.

 

"My goodness, we've been out since March 6, 2013 at 2 in the morning.  We've been off the property except for the offices and the family kitchen.  This is a great homecoming.  This will give the congregation some sense of normalcy with our servcies and our operation."

 

The church will hold two services at the building known as St. Helen's Hall starting this Sunday.  The historic church building across the street that sustaiend more extensive fire damage should be ready by the end of the year.

 

No one has ever been arrested for the arson fire.
