Regularly stated religious worship is held weekly at St Joseph's Church every Sunday morning at 11am.
The St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church was founded in 1859 by Rev. Priest O'Reilly under the Scranton Diocese authority.
After presenting the Gospel of Christ for 150 years the church was selected to be closed in July 2010 for church consolidation.
All things Christian were removed from the interior of the building and it was left to decay or be sold.
A concerned group of local residents were successful in purchasing the building and are stopping the decay and further damage due to groundwater and general disrepair.
