The LuLac Edition #3821, June 30th, 2018

The complex in one block of the city of Pittston put together by the master visionary Monsignor Joseph Super.

It is 10 years to the day that St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Pittston had its last Mass.
A packed church on that hot, sunny Sunday afternoon in 2008 worshiped for the final time as the doors closed. The church was a haven for Slovak immigrants who in the 1890s grew the building into a church, convent, school, and athletic center. All that stands now is a parking lot with a monument on it.
But those memories of a time well spent have never ceased.
