Community Group Takes Over Church

DOUGHERTY, Iowa (AP) -- A nonprofit group is the new owner of the 142-year-old former St. Patrick's Catholic Church in the small northern Iowa community of Dougherty.
   The Mason City Globe Gazette reports ( ) an event is planned Sunday to mark the transfer of the church from the Archdiocese of Dubuque to the Society To Preserve Antiquated Town Structures.
   The official transfer took place in late February, when the property was sold for $1.
   The archdiocese closed the church in 2012.
   Dougherty resident Dennis Campbell says the group is still planning how to use the building.
   The former church can be used for prayer services and weddings, but Mass can't be celebrated in the building.
   A kitchen and gym will be used as a community center.
   Dougherty is 13 miles southeast of Mason City.
