Back when churches were churches: some stunning examples in Pennsylvania

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/22/15

In the days before someone decided that the interior of every church needed to resemble a rec room, with a façade that paid tribute to the Kwik-E-Mart, folks built sacred houses of worship that actually looked sacred.

Take, for example, these beautiful places in Pennsylvania, including the Catholic church pictured here, St. Joseph’s, in Erie.
