The demolition of Saint James Church in Chicago is set to begin Wednesday.

Many parishioners have waged a battle to try and save the church in Chicago's Bronzeville community.

The church is in bad condition.

The Chicago Archdiocese estimates renovating it would cost $12 million.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the wrecking ball will move in Wednesday.
