Parishioners of the St. Francis X. Cabrini church in Scituate — who have been holding a “protest vigil” ever since the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston announced it would be closed in 2004 — must vacate the premises by May 29, a state judge ruled today.

In his order, Norfolk Superior Court Judge Edward P. Leibensperger noted that the “defendants and those individuals in active concert with them, are unlawfully and intentionally committing a trespass by the continuation of their protest vigil on the premises of the church.”

Congregants of the church have been holding a round-the-clock vigil since October 2004.
