Assumption Blessed Virgin Mary Church - 1892

Assumption Blessed Virgin Mary Church - 1892

Mahanoy City, PA

Founded by Slovak settlers, this church is an architectural gem with all of it's detail.

Scheduled to close by July 15, 2008, it is one of 32 local Catholic churches that are closing this summer.

This area is not just losing churches ..... It is losing much of it's heritage, architectural charm and beauty, and the dominance of the Catholic Church.
