St. Liborius, Revisited

I stopped by St. Liborius, which anchors the bend of St. Louis Avenue in St. Louis Place. Maybe one day buildings will line this street again. See my photos from several years ago here.

    Is the rectory occupied? It does not appear derelict.

  2. The rectory has been occupied by Karen Catholic Worker house since 1977. Here's a link to their website: http://karenhousecw.org/

  3. We are hosting a gathering to discuss St. Liborious Church's future.

    We are asking our neighbors and the larger community - Are there people or groups with the interest and ability to maintain and use the Church building?

    Open house in Church: 4:30-5:30pm (come to 18th Street side - the back of the church)

    Gathering to discuss Church: 5:30-7pm (Karen House dining room - 1840 Hogan)

    We will have information sheets about the building at the gathering.

    Please, no kids - the building is in disrepair.

    Let us know if you have any questions.


    1. Jenny,
