A number of parishoners are hoping they can fight to keep a Lockport church open.

Congregation members at St. Mary's learned over the weekend that their church is slated for closure by order from Western New York bishop Edward Kmick.

According to the bishop, the church is slated to close by Sept. 1, although an appeal is in the works.

The diocese insists Lockport only needs one Catholic church.
