HOLY SAVIOUR PROPERTY IS SOLD: Father Robert McDermott made the following announcement at all Masses the weekend of August18/19. "I am pleased to make an announcement of hope for the future and renewal that comes forth from the sadness of difficult decisions and reality. Holy Saviour Church was relegated by Archbishop Chaput in June 2015 upon request of St. John Fisher Parish. The parish property including church, school, rectory and convent was placed on the retail market in July 2015 with Media Real Estate. Settlement on the sale of this property was finalized on Thursday, August 16, 2018. The purchaser of the property is a DGC Development Group Co., a local developer with other property holdings in Lower Chichester Township. The current zoning uses are delineated by township ordinances as a General Commercial District. We do not know of specific plans by the new owner concerning the church building. Upon sale agreement, future uses by the ownership allow secular uses of the church building but nothing that would be considered profane.
The proceeds of the sale of the Holy Saviour Parish property are designated by Canon Law as the property of the merged parish of Saint John Fisher. The parish debt of Holy Saviour with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be deducted from the proceeds of the sale. This has been a difficult but necessary step for our merged parish and we are considerate of the sense of loss of all parishioners. Our parish will see an easement of time spent in the care of this property and financial savings in insurance, liability and maintenance.
The Parish Pastoral Council and Finance Committee have identified a remodeling project of Saint John Fisher Church as the most suitable use of the funds of this sale. The earmarked proceeds will be a significant portion of the funds needed for this project. A church remodeling project will enable us to combine marble and stained glass from Holy Saviour with other changes for increased lighting, devotion and beauty. The net proceeds from the sale after real estate fees, parish debt and extraordinary maintenance costs for the Holy Saviour property is $654,000.
It is hoped that just as we have come together as a parish community, a remodeled church will glorify God, further unite us and build a welcoming place for future generations."
