St. Paul Church for sale with restrictions

From Minnesota-

There is a piece of property for sale on Summit Avenue in St. Paul, but it is not just any property.  It is the historic St. Paul’s Church on the Hill.

The 103-year-old worship facility closed in 2015, suffering from a dwindling parish population. The decision to sell it was difficult, in the opinion of Episcopal Church officials, but necessary.

“This is one of those faith communities that came to the end of its life,” said the Rev. Michael Pipkin, Missioner for Missional Management of the Episcopal Church of St. Paul. “What we are really hoping is that this asset for the church, this building, can be used to somehow engage the neighborhood, that something can happen here that will benefit not just the neighbors nearby but throughout the whole community of St. Paul.”
