It's looking like the vacant St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Perham will be converted into an event center.

St. Stan's, which began as a Polish church in 1922, closed its doors in October 2009. An estimated 300 to 350 filled the church for the final Mass.


Since then, former parishioners and community members have been trying to find a way to open it to the public.
