'Cathedral of the Bronx' holds final Mass
Parishioners at one of the borough's oldest church's said their final prayers Sunday as St. Augustine's Church closes.

Parishioners hope to build a smaller church near the current site, but it's unclear what will happen to the property where St. Augustine's sits.
