Archbishop's mansion for sale.
Selling the residence helps fulfill O'Malley's promise that no collection plate money will be used to pay for the record settlement. A plan O'Malley presented to the archdiocesan Finance Council Dec. 3 proposes funding the settlement with short-term loans and paying back the lenders with proceeds from the sale of the Brighton property and insurance money.
Boston College, a Jesuit university located across the street from the chancery, has expressed interest in purchasing the property. The Associated Press reported that real estate experts say the land could fetch up to $20 million.
