Nonstop vigil keeps Scituate group hopeful
Church, archdiocese in years-long clash
SCITUATE - On Day 2,731 of the unbroken vigil at St. Frances X. Cabrini, parishioners pledged to continue their occupation of the shuttered church, despite a move this week by the Boston Archdiocese that shut down a protest vigil in East Boston. “We’re optimistic; we’re prayerful; we’re still here 24/7,’’ said Maryellen Rogers, a leader of the St. Frances vigil, which has maintained at least one person at the church around-the-clock since it closed in 2004.
