Catholic education is dying a fast death in Northern Schuylkill County-- and many other places across the United States, too..
News now circulating now that Immaculate Heart in Girardville PA will be demolished at some point in the near future..
The Allentown Diocese said it would pay 50% to trash the former Catholic elementary school if St. Joseph's Church next door came up with the rest.. But the answer was no from the pastor, which we will keep nameless....Most know who he is.
But the Diocese isn't asking anymore.. it's telling.
The St. Joseph's bulletin admits that the Diocese is issuing almost an order than the school be taken down.. According to the bulletin, it will be discussed at a Parish Finance Council later this month..
Wonder if those ghosts that reportedly inhabit the building will leave peacefully?
Anyone who has seen the building over the past several months have witnessed a dilapidated and almost dangerous structure.. Parts of the building are falling down, holes in the wall are appearing.. It is beyond wear and tear. It's erosion in the highest degree. The structure seems to be becoming dangerous to passersby..
Until it's gone.
Paging Fr. Montgello! Maybe it's time for a good old fashioned spaghetti dinner fundraiser.. just like in the 20th century....
