A ceremony at which a plaque will be revealed to memorialize St. James the Great Church in Wellesley will be held on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 5pm at 900 Worcester St.
That’s the site of the former house of worship and the current site of the Boston Sports Institute, Wellesley’s new skating and swimming facility.
The church was torn down in 2015 after the town bought the property in the wake of the Catholic church scandal. As part of the agreement, the town vowed to erect a memorial or plaque to commemorate the parish.
St. James the Great parishioners held vigils for 7-plus years before ending the stay in 2012.
