What a shame it is to witness the demolition of the iconic St. Patrick church. Opened in 1964, it has had a short life.

It was not only a place of worship, but also a place that created memories for many of its parishioner families, from weddings to funerals, etc.

It was a catalyst to the Libbytown and Stroudwater neighborhoods.

Driving by 1342 Congress St. will not be the same. So sad, so sad!
