Even if a church closes, it doesn’t mean failure, said the Rev. Taylor.

“When La Salle closes, it leaves a legacy of kind, good people who have passed that on to their children and grandchildren,” she said. “No matter where people go, they will always bring a piece of La Salle church with them.”

That’s a warm sentiment, but it’s not true. It does mean failure. They didn’t pass that on to their children and grandchildren.
