Streator Catholic officials continue to seek a buyer for the property that encompasses the former Immaculate Conception parish.
The entire property at Immaculate Conception, including the buildings and the parking lots, has been appraised at a value of $453,500. The buildings include the church, the rectory and the parish hall. The Rev. Monsignor Philip Halfacre said this week he wants to sell the property in its entirety, and not in pieces. He noted he has been approached informally about purchasing the property but has not received a formal offer.
Last week, St. Michael the Archangel Parish's bulletin indicated a couple bequeathed $275,000 and their home to the parish. Halfacre said if and when the Immaculate Conception property sells, he would likely use the home recently donated to the parish as the rectory.
