Rome Newsroom, Mar 23, 2021 / 02:00 pm (CNA).- An experimental pastoral center in the heart of the French capital closed down on March 1 on the instructions of the Archbishop of Paris.

Archbishop Michel Aupetit announced his decision to suppress the Saint-Merry Pastoral Center, in the Beaubourg-Les Halles area, in a Feb. 7 letter to the community.

The decision, which received widespread media coverage in France, is reportedly the result of years of tensions between some of the parish’s lay members and its three last pastors.
