Nonprofit nearing deal for JP church

A nonprofit group is expected to complete a deal soon to buy the vacant Blessed Sacrament church in Jamaica Plain so it can use the building for community space, blocking a controversial proposal to convert the 96-year-old building into pricey condos.

The group, the Hyde Square Task Force, said it recently signed a purchase-and-sale agreement to buy the 16,800-square-foot Italian Renaissance revival-style church. Other steps are still required to seal the deal.
