More than 700 parishioners marked the closing St. Anthony’s Church in Batavia.

The century-old church, founded by Italian immigrants, was closed Sunday in a final mass celebrated by Bishop Richard Malone.

St. Anthony’s merged a few years ago with Sacred Heart and became what is now known as Ascension Parish. The church closed due to budget constraints and so the parish as a whole could focus more on ministry efforts, not operation expenses.
