There is welcome news from the Vatican to parishioners in Wellsville Ohio.
The Immaculate Conception Church in Wellsville was ordered closed and now the Vatican has overruled a Ohio Bishop and ordered the church to reopen.
They say the parish had 150 families, sound finances and its Sunday Mass was crowded.
Once a rarity, the Vatican has overturned at least 28 church closings in seven U.S. dioceses in recent years.
