Scituate Catholic church latest house of worship ripe for conversion

Ends 12-year fight

Dina Rudick for the Boston Globe

St. Frances X. Cabrini Church at 27 Hood Road in Scituate’s Egypt neighborhood is on the market now for $2.2 million.

The 56-year-old parish building and its surrounding 16.2 acres are likely to be redeveloped into a residential complex, per the Globe. That would make St. Frances X. Cabrini the latest in a string of Boston-area churches to find second acts as condos and apartments.

Probably the region’s most prominent such church conversion—that of the old Holy Trinity German Catholic Church and rectory at 136 Shawmut Avenue in the South End—is nearly complete (with some big deals already done for its 33 condos).

The St. Frances X. Cabrini conversion would cap quite a saga for the property. Parishioners occupied the church from its 2004 closure by the archdiocese of Boston until early 2016, when they had exhausted legal channels for reopening it.

Stay tuned for redevelopment news.
