For two days in a row the Boston Fire Department visited the Blessed Sacrament Church to attend to falling stones from the building.

On Nov. 24, the Boston Fire Department tweeted that, "Some of the beautiful coping stones have show they're aging by falling to the steps below."

No injuries were caused by the falling stones.

The Blessed Sacrament Church is owned by Hyde Square Task Force, which purchased it in 2014 with the intent of redeveloping it into a community center.

But the HSTF Board of Directors voted earlier this year to sell the church after being unable to find a partner to help redevelop the church.

BFD Tower Ladder 10 visited the church on Wednesday to check on the status of the building, and remove any loose pieces of coping and corbels. ISD was on scene to secure the property.
