“Mount Carmel preservationists building momentum before church closure anniversary”

Worcester Magazine:

The crux of MPS members’ complaints is that the church does not have a revenue problem, as church pastor Stephen Pedone and others have claimed, but instead a fiscal management problem, complaining of things ranging from a lack of initiative to make money off a nearby recreation center to a failure to seek insurance money for problems in the past. Under better management, they argue, the church could thrive, pointing to 2015 donation numbers that are above many other area parishes.
