A vacant and condemned Connecticut church that has become a frequent target of vandals is now up for sale.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Norwich took over the former Sacred Heart Church property in Vernon late last year after a merger of Sacred Heart and St. Bernard in Rockville. The diocese is now seeking to sell the church, rectory and community center attached to the property.

Diocese spokesman Wayne Gignac says the diocese is also seeking bids to demolish the property. The Vernon Town Clerk’s office says the church hasn’t been in use since 1997 and has become a frequent target for vandals and trespassers.

Vernon resident Sherrin Roch calls the property an eyesore and says “it’s very unpleasant to have in the neighborhood.”
