Nuns on the run

Pottsville REPUBLICAN reporting that the order of nuns that staffed Good Sam in Pottsville are leaving, and not coming back.

More: A consistently shrinking amount of sisters, the Daughters of Charity, have now caused the re-order of the order. The nuns will leave in August--no specific date as of now has been released.

Among the nuns leaving, the only nun serving at Nativity BVM in Pottsville, also being reassigned.

Saturday goodbyes..

Today will be the last day for a number of churches in Schuylkill county to conduct mass.

The diocease, which announced the closure churches weeks back, gave some suggestions for homilies, songs, and celebrations for the pastors to include.

Tonight, the final farewells, most likely tearful in many instances, will occur.
