Repairing storm damage at St. Pius X

SELINSGROVE – A Selinsgrove church will be busy repairing damage after their steeple was blown down on Sunday afternoon during a gusty thunderstorm. Church officials at St. Pius X say there was also minor damage to the roof and they are hoping repairs will begin today.

They would like to replace the steeple, which was a gift from the contractor when the new church was built in 2008. The image of the steeple was incorporated in the church’s logo, so they hope to have the steeple repaired quickly. Father Dan Powell was not in town during the storm, so was unable to comment on the extent of damage. (Ali Stevens)
