BEAVER FALLS, Pa. —
Saint Mary’s Church has been in downtown Beaver Falls for about 110 years, but a leaking roof and a plaster crack have the church’s future in jeopardy.
Despite the damages that could cost more than $1 million, parishioners are fighting to save their church.
Parishioners have made a Facebook page called “Save Saint Mary’s Catholic Church.”
“This church is historic. It’s 110 years old and a lot of people have been through here. A lot of things have happened here. People love this church,” Divine Mercy Parish Fr. Jim Farnan said.
Farman said he’s proud of the people trying to get the word out, but no decision has been made on what’s next for Saint Mary’s.
“Whatever happens, we will go on. We will see what the next step is. We are people of faith,” Farman said.
The church is waiting to plan its future until they find out how much insurance will cover.
