Century-old Catholic church demolished after failing to sell

NANTICOKE — A century-old Roman Catholic church in Pennsylvania has been demolished.

Some emotional parishioners were on hand as the cross-topped steeple of St. Joseph’s Church in Nanticoke toppled to the ground on Monday.

St. Joseph’s has been closed since 2010, and the parish was consolidated with several other churches.

Church leaders had been trying to sell the building but there were no takers.

1. There will be a lot of that over the next couple of decades

I believe Nanticoke is not far from Wilkes-Barre and near the old coal mines. Lots of immigrants, I think Polish and Irish, moved there for the work.
