Cuba OKs Const. of First Cath.Church in 55 Years; Vatican, Communist Cuba Improving Relationship

Cuba's Roman Catholic Church announced yesterday that the government has allowed the construction of its first new Catholic Church in 55 years, the Huffington Post website reports today (October 28, 2014).

Theology experts said it's a sign of improving relations between the Vatican and Cuba's communist government, which has been ruling Cuba for the past 55 years.

The new church -- funded primarily by donations from Catholics in Tampa, Florida -- will be built in Sandino, a citrus and coffee-growing town in the far-western province of Pinar del Rio.

The church will have enough space to accommodate 200 people.
