BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) The Catholic Diocese of Buffalo is now willing to hold off on plans to demolish St. Ann's Church.
The Diocese is working with Preservation Buffalo Niagara in hopes of finding a developer who is interested in purchasing the church, rectory, and convent properties.
All activities at St. Ann's on Emslie Street in Buffalo were suspended last year because of dangerous structural problems.
Parishioners have continued to fight to save the church that was built in the 19th century.
This week they filed a new legal action in Rome hoping that the Vatican will step in and help save St. Ann's Parish.
