Late Fr. Keane's former chapel up for sale

St. Roger and St. Mary Chapel, the former independent Latin Mass chapel in West Roxbury established by the late Fr. John Keane, is now for sale. The property at 95 Rockland Street is listed for $395,000 by Donahue Real Estate. According to city records, the owner is the Society of Saint Pius X, who bought the property thinking they were going to reopen it as a chapel. But with only a seating capacity of 90 and no parking lot, it is no longer useable as a church. Mass has not been said there for quite some time. 

The SSPX currently rent office space in Woburn, where Mass is said every Sunday morning at 9:00 am. There is also an endangered parish which could get axed by the Archdiocese of Boston, which the SSPX should try to acquire.
