Our Lady of Loreto remains a still-living monument to a diaspora larger than many the world had known till then. It is a creation of beauty, magnetism, and rich--very rich--potential to tell its story of diversity and welcome.

Three years ago the Diocese of Brooklyn issued the long-awaited announcement in various Brooklyn news venues that they would NOT demolish Our Lady of Loreto Church.

But the reality was that they only transferred the authority to make redevelopment plans for the church to Catholic Charities housing corporation: Progress of Peoples Development.

A year ago, Catholic Charities issued an RFP that refers to the church building as the “FORMER” Our Lady of Loreto.

It also says they did NOT exclude demolition of the church if the proposing developer does not think it “feasible” to save it.
