St. James Church demolition begins
June 26, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Demolition work began Wednesday on the historic Saint James Catholic Church in Chicago's Bronzeville community.
Parishioners have been fighting to save the 133-year-old church and plan to continue their fight.
But their church is in bad condition and repairs are costly.
A symbolic 4-by-6 foot hole was cut into the roof as a group of parishioners watched.
