Catholics are once again protesting the Galveston/Houston archdiocese's decision to close the only church on Bolivar Peninsula.About 30 people demonstrated outside downtown's Co-cathedral of the Sacred Heart Sunday morning. They held crucifixes and signs calling on the archdiocese to reverse its decision to shut down Our Mother of Mercy, the only church on the 36 mile peninsula.

The archdiocese wants to demolish the church, which was damaged during Hurricane Ike.
