St Patrick’s of Scranton celebrates old and new

View from the balcony of St. Patrick’s Church, at Scranton, Kan., which served its parish for more than 100 years.

One year ago, in October 2017, parishioners of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Scranton celebrated the 100th anniversary of the current church building and 150 years of the parish being in the Scranton community.

Now one year later, the parish is anxiously awaiting the completion of a new church building. If the finishing construction goes as planned, the final Sunday mass in the current church building will be Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018. On Nov. 4, the new church building will be dedicated at the 10 a.m. mass. Parishioners will host a lunch after the mass in the Scranton school. Lunch reservations may be emailed to [email protected] or call 785-640-4503 by Oct. 14.

Parishioners will host open house tours in the new church building 2:30-3 p.m. Nov. 4.

St. Patrick’s parishioners are proud to share their Scranton roots and are dedicated to continued participation in the Scranton community.
