The Parish Council of St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church in Montauk has agreed that the congregation's much-loved church building should be replaced with a new church of similar design. The Tudor-style building, on South Essex Avenue, is a downtown Montauk landmark.
The decision, which has been accepted by the church's pastor, the Rev. John C. Nosser, was made at a meeting of the council on April 19. The cost has been estimated at over $1 million.
