    (Published Friday, Oct. 12, 2018)

    A Roman Catholic church in Boston had to be evacuated Friday morning after several children reported feeling ill and three were taken to a hospital.

    Boston fire officials responded to Holy Name church in the city's West Roxbury neighborhood just before 11 a.m. because the children complained of feeling light-headed and faint.

    Three went to the hospital with what fire officials called "non-life threatening injuries."

    The building was evacuated as a precaution.

    Church officials say the children were there for a prayer service.

    Firefighters conducted air quality tests and did not find anything unusual.

     

    Principal of Holy Name Parish School, Kathleen Caulfield, released a statement saying that all students are safe and following normal school routines.
