Group seeking to save church plans barbecue
CATSKILL >> A group that wants to save the historic St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church from being permanently closed will hold a fundraising barbecue Oct. 27.
The Friends of St. Patrick’s will hold a chicken barbecue from 3:30 to 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Advance Auto on U.S. Route 9W in the village. Frese’s Catering Services of Ravena will provide a chicken dinner with half a chicken, baked potato, corn on the cob, coleslaw, roll, butter and a cookie. The cost of a dinner is $11.
Tickets can be obtained from members of the Friends of St. Patrick’s or by calling (518) 943-5781.
The Albany Roman Catholic Diocese recently announced the St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church at 157 Bridge St. in Catskill would be permanently closed. The church was founded in 1885.
The Friends of St. Patrick’s want to have the diocese reverse its decision through the appeal process.
