St. Joseph’s Church, Manchester

Originally a German Catholic church. The building has long been abandoned by its former Catholic congregation (which merged with St. Peter’s), and now bears a sign for Deliverance Center Original Church of God. It could use some work, but the basic structure looks sound.

Old Pa Pitt took this composite picture back in April and then forgot about it. Here it is now. It’s quite large, so don’t click on the picture if you’re on a metered connection.

  1. Hi Father Pitt,

    I am a designer at an architectural firm in Pittsburgh that is trying to gather support in the effort to rebuild/revitalize Manchester. I am interested in using some of your church images on a web page that shows current landmarks in that area. Will you allow us to incorporate your images if I offer an image credit? If so, please let me know how you would like it to read.

    Thank you for your time,
    Kirsten

  2. Has anyone tried to put together a plan to save this church? My husband and I were fortunate to get a tour of it today by the Pastor (James), who is a really nice guy. We live in Manchester and have thought a lot about how we can help to save it.
