Father Jean Pelletier gives mass in the Salle des Loisirs Hall in the village of Geste, western France...
Father Jean Pelletier gives mass in the Salle des Loisirs Hall in the village of Geste, western France, September 7, 2013. The 19th-century neo-gothic parish church in Geste, dedicated to St. Peter, was scheduled for demolition in 2007 by the city council, a victim of its size, maintenance costs and overall municipal budget issues. The current church, with only the bell tower and crypt remaining, will be replaced by a new one in 2016 that will be far cheaper to keep up. This destruction is part of a large debate across France where villages are faced with churches in deteriorating condition, diminishing populations, with fewer parishioners and priests, and increasing upkeep costs.
