Confessions are out and condo conversion may be in at one historic New York City Catholic church.

The Archdiocese of New York, which shuttered Our Lady of Vilnius in Lower Manhattan six years ago, has quietly put it in on the market for $13 million, The Villager newspaper reports.

The beautiful old parish, founded by Lithuanian immigrants in 1905, was denied landmark status by the city Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2007, around the time it was closed due to dwindling membership.

Parishioners sued the archdiocese in a bid to save the church, but failed to win in state court.
The lot, which measures 3,800-square-feet, stands near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, which connects New York and New Jersey, according to DNAInfo.com.

Massey Knakal Realty Services, the brokers for the property, said in its listing: “With the approval of the pending rezoning, the property represents an opportunity for a large residential and commercial development."
