Former St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church, Revisited

I went by the old St. Mark’s Roman Catholic Church on Page Boulevard at Academy Avenue. It looks much like it did the last time I visited, but I think more of the window framing in the tower is missing.

The school building is huge, and shows how large this parish used to be. The congregation that bought the church after the parish closed has now moved on, as well.

  1. My grandfather attended this school around 90 years ago when he lived nearby on Ridge Ave.
