WARWICK – Two former Catholic churches in Warwick are on the market.
St. Catherine’s Cathedral Church at 3248-3252 Post Road was listed for $1 million, while St. Francis of Assisi at 596-616 Jefferson Blvd. was listed for $1.6 million. Both churches were listed for sale through Providence-based MG Commercial Real Estate Services Inc. on Feb. 6, said Mike Giuttari, president of MG Commercial.
The property at St. Catherine’s Cathedral Church consists of six parcels on 2 acres, including a two-level, 8,458-square-foot religious center and a 2,578-square-foot religious convent.
According to the listing, that property comes with “plenty of parking.” It is located in the Apponaug neighborhood in Warwick, across from City Hall and Warwick Center for the Arts.
St. Francis of Assisi is part of a 2.97-acre parcel with a two-level building – made up of a 13,772-square-foot first floor and a 7,916-square-foot second floor – and a two-level, 2,502-square-foot residential dwelling.
The land is “centrally located,” according to the listing, across from Hilton Garden and Iron Works Restaurant and “a few minutes” from Rhode Island T.F. Green International Airport.
The two churches have been closed since 2021, when Bishop Thomas J. Tobin announced St. Catherine and St. Francis of Assisi parishes would be merged with Saint Rose and Clement Parish, also in Warwick.
