St. Mary's Catholic Church in west Jackson had its final Mass Sunday, March 8. It was built in the late 1940s but its membership dwindled over the years.

And I know recently St. Therese ended their school program, so I wonder if St. Therese is on the verge of holding IT'S final mass ... Hopefully not.

A priest who works at the Diocese of Jackson's office let me and the priest of my parish look inside St. Mary's last Tuesday. A sad sight - musty and with rodent dung all over the floor. The church was built in the 1950s but the underlying Yazoo Clay has put serious cracks in the floor and walls. Several acres of property - a church, rectory, convent, school, and gym - for sale in west Jackson (a daycare center uses the former elementary school).
In the first post, I wrote that the church was built in the late 1940s. The parish was established in 1948, but the sanctuary was built in 1954. Maybe they met in the gym in the interim?
The neighborhood surrounding St. Mary's may have been middle-class about 1950, but the houses are much smaller than what we may think of as middle-class homes today.
