The long fight to keep Lockport's St. Mary's Parish open has officially ended ... WLVL got documentation that the local parish merger is finished and St. Mary's most recent appeal has been dismissed by Rome ...

A two-sided bulletin was distributed over the weekend from Father Joe Vatter, the pastor of All Saints Parish, explaining that the most recent appeal has been dismissed and that "St. Mary's has lost the canonical status of a parish church with any of the rights and privilges therein implied."

The Steeple Lights will be used again on special occasions.
