Letter: A sad day in Salem

To the editor:

It is a sad day in Salem to see St. Joseph Church be torn down. Now the archdiocese says they made a mistake in closing churches seven years ago. Conspiracy theorists would love this. First, they said a parish that had a school wouldn’t close. St. Joe’s had a school. Then after seven years, a division of the archdiocese buys the land and no one was bothered because Boston was going to tear down the church with the mayor’s blessing. I hope that Sean O’Malley and Kim Driscoll are proud of themselves.
