CHICAGO (CBS) — Despite a last minute push to keep it open, a parish in Pilsen will close later this year.
In February, the Archdiocese announced that it was closing St. Adalbert Church at 17th and Paulina as part of larger consolidation of parishes in Pilsen.
A month later, an anonymous donor left a gift originally estimated at $3 million. Supporters hoped it was enough to rehab the church and keep it going.
The gift turned out to be stock later valued at $1.5 million.
