The Lincoln Heights bell that sat silent for about 20 years will have a chance to ring again--at its home at Sacred Heart Church rather than the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. In May, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony wrote a letter to the parishioners of Sacred Heart expressing an interest in the bell for the new downtown Los Angeles cathedral that will be inaugurated next year.

Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of setting fire last month to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, one of the oldest churches in Los Angeles, authorities announced Friday. The male suspects, ages 17 and 18, were arrested late Thursday in connection with the Jan. 21 fire, which caused about $60,000 in damage to the structure's doors, said authorities and church officials. The church in Lincoln Heights was built in 1887. Investigators said the fire was probably purely vandalism.

Not much is left of this old farming town, isolated and forgotten in the vast emptiness of far West Texas. On the side of a dirt road are a cantina, a rustic convenience store and a ragged row of mailboxes for the town's 17 residents. As the trail curves, the crumbling remains of an adobe church built nearly a century ago come into view. Some walls of the Sacred Heart of Jesus mission are missing, as is most of the corrugated metal roof. A stately arched entry remains.

As an altar boy at Sacred Heart Church, Oscar Garcia would run up the steps of the steeple and lunge at the rope that rang the massive bell. But the trusty bell that kept time in his Lincoln Heights community has been silent for decades. It has sat in a grassy yard next to the red brick church ever since the steeple was damaged during the San Fernando earthquake. Now, the bell has a chance to ring again--this time prominently in the high tower of the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

Roman Catholic church leaders announced the "sad decision" to tear down two 19th-Century churches damaged in the 7.1 Loma Prieta earthquake nearly a year ago. Bishop John S. Cummins of the Catholic Diocese of Oakland told a news conference that St. Francis de Sales Cathedral and Sacred Heart Church will be razed. He said the church cannot afford the $8 million it would cost to fix them. St. Francis, near downtown, was built in 1893. Sacred Heart, in north Oakland, was built in 1897.

A reported break-in at a church and a stabbing attack on its priest were staged by the clergyman himself, who would not explain his motive, police in Dearborn, Mich., said. Father Ronald Green had staged similar attacks on himself in the 1970s, before he became a priest, authorities said. Green initially told police he was attacked Thursday during his morning prayer session at Sacred Heart Church. He then confessed that he stabbed himself, officers said.
