Closing churches has been a source of angst and anger in the historically Catholic-rich city of Lockport for more than two years.
Now, though, the planned Easter Sunday opening of an evangelical Christian church has heightened the sensitivities of some Catholics.
The Chapel at CrossPoint, an Amherst megachurch, will launch a satellite campus in April, using the Palace Theatre and a former post office, both on Main Street in the heart of Lockport.
At least one Catholic priest views the move as an effort to scoop up disenfranchised Catholics in the community, and he's warned his parishioners about it.

I could not find the video referenced (only a couple links to pulled videos). If anyone does feel free to post the link.

As I've said before, it will be nice to have more people DT. The work being done the Palace in lieu of rent and another tenant (with money) are also pluses.
