ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - For-sale signs have been posted outside several properties owned by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis as it seeks to pay creditors.

KSTP-TV (https://bit.ly/1Q9xSSd ) reports the properties with the for-sale signs include the chancery and the archbishop’s residence in St. Paul near the cathedral, as well as three other properties in St. Paul and another in Northfield.

Archdiocese chief financial officer Tom Mertens tells the TV station that it was a difficult decision to try selling the properties because of their “significance and history.” He says it will be cheaper to rent spaces.

Mertens says there are no offers so far on the properties.

The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in mid-January amid a wave of clergy abuse lawsuits.
