In-depth story on the losing fight to save S.F.'s St. Brigid Church

Today's (Sunday) San Francisco Chronicle carries the first installment (click on this post's title) of "the Lost Parish," a big three-part series on the heartbreaking and so-far futile efforts of Fr. Cyril O'Sullivan and the Committee to Save St. Brigid since 1994 to save beautiful, historic St. Brigid Church in downtown San Francisco from Archbishop John Quinn, then-Archbishop William Levada and the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

Dude, it's useless. The preservation community in Baltimore fought the archdiocese of Baltimore's attempts to level almost twenty historical buildings, including a series of buildings belonging a parish, and lost every single time.
