Battle to save church is likely to end up in court
CAMPAIGNERS trying to save a landmark church in New Brighton say they expect to take the battle to court after the Catholic Diocese of Shrewsbury confirmed it has no intention of re-opening Ss Peter and Paul's.
The campaign group SOUL (Save Our Unique Landmark) won the first round when the Vatican "court" known as the Congregation of the Clergy found in their favour earlier this year. This written decision is reproduced below.

However, although the decision seems to be clearly against the Diocese, the judgement does allow that they followed the correct procedures in closing the church, and it is on this basis they are now refusing to re-open it, SOUL saying they had agreed to abide by the Congregation's judgement.
You can read that judgement for yourself, although beware - it is written in extremely arcance and legalistic language... (click on the thmbnails for a larger image).
