Today was the official closing ceremony for St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. The church had plans to close down for a while now due to lack of parishioners and more recently a ceiling tile falling during mass.
The service started with a prayer and a few hymns. Father Matthew Jones then made a few closing remarks.
The service ended with a ceremonial ribbon tying over the doors to signify that the church is now closed permanently.
The church was built in 1913 and was dedicated in 1955 now that it is closed the Catholic churches of Corning will now be consolidated
