GREENLEAF – Saint Clare Catholic Parish has purchased 15 acres of farmland, and it isn’t to get in the business of growing corn.
Father Brian Wideman, priest-administrator of the parish, said an anonymous donor is responsible for the church’s acquisition of the land.
The land is on the southeast corner of State 96 and Shanty Road in the Town of Wrightstown. The site is east of and across the street from the Wrightstown High School student parking lot and Tiger Stadium. The parish had been seeking land near the high school for a new parish complex site.
The parish – created with the merger of St. Paul-Wrightstown, St. Mary-Greenleaf and St. Patrick-Askeaton seven years ago – had decided to pursue construction of a new church complex instead of keeping the Wrightstown church building as the sole worship site.
