According to the Lansing State Journal, a nearly century old Catholic church in Lansing's Moores Park neighborhood could soon close.

St. Casimir church has been in the Lansing area for many years and is a big part of the Lansing community.

St. Casimir's dwindling number of parishioners and a lack of financial support could force the church to cease operations by mid 2020. No final decision has been made on the parish's future.

St. Casimer's administrator, met with parishioners in November and told them of the reasons behind the potential closing. The church needs more than $30,000 above the normal collections to make it through June 2020.

The church opened in 1921 and served Lansing's growing Polish community. St. Casimir's school opened in 1928 but closed in 1921.

St. Casimir's could be the first Catholic church closed by the Lansing Diocese in almost a decade. Please click on the above link for more information.
