With massive numbers of Catholic parishes closing around the country, diocesan owners have been selling off church buildings and lands. Occasionally, the property converts into another use. But what happens when a church building is bought and the new owners literally move in?

In this case, St. Mark's Methodist Church (a National Historic Landmark), located in Brookline, Mass. was converted into condominiums. Sharon and Paul Olean bought a three floor unit in the 19th century church.
