The Beachmont parish in exile will hold a vigil for the Feast of the Pentecost on May 26th at 4 p.m. in the Our Lady of Lourdes Park on Endicott Avenue.
The vigil will include a Mass conducted by priests from other parishes. Those who attend are urged to bring their own chairs this time.
The parish is still appealing the closure of their parish by the Archdiocese of Boston in 2004. Their appeal is in the Vatican before the Signatoria.
John Verrengia, who has led the fight with City Councillor Doug Goodwin, said he is expecting a decision from Rome within the next eight to 10 weeks.
“Our advocate in Rome feels we could hear something by early summer,” he said. “If not then, it probably won’t be until next year. Everything seems to be positive though and we might win. All the questions asked of us are the ones we need to hear.”
Of the 100 cases before the Signatoria, 10 percent of them are against the Archdiocese of Boston, Verrengia said.
