Mater Dolorosa Supporters to Appear in Court

January 1, 2012

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB)–A hearing is scheduled for supporters of Mater Dolorosa holding vigil at the church.

Attorney Victor M. Anop, the spokesperson for the individuals holding vigil, announced that they would be at the Hampshire County Superior Court on Wednesday at 2 pm. The group will contest a Bishop’s motion to stop their praying at the church.

Anop also says they have a cross motion in to keep the Mater Dolorosa vigil going and to dismiss the case.

January marks the sixth month in which the 24/7 prayer vigil has been held to save the historic church.
