A Norfolk Superior Court judge has ruled that the friends of St. Frances must end their decade-long vigil.

The judge said that parishioners occupying the closed Scituate church must leave by May 26. A counter claim that was filed by parishioners has been dismissed.

A group of parishioners has held vigil at the church for the last 10 years, after the Boston Archdiocese ordered it closed as part of its 2004 reconfiguration.

Parishioners have said the fight won’t end in superior court if the judge rules against them. They have vowed to take the issue to the highest court possible.
