St. Patrick Church to present second viewing of time capsule contents

Greg Ockwood and Dennis Klump opening the time capsule in December 2023.

St. Patrick Catholic Church of Scranton will be offering a second viewing of items removed from the 106-year-old time capsule saved from the old church before it was torn down. The time capsule collection contains local area newspapers, books, letters and religious articles from this time period. The showing will be 6-8 p.m. Saturday, July 27, 2024, at St. Brigid Hall, 303 S. Sixth St., Osage City.

A few of the many items inside the time capsule.

The time capsule was placed when the congregation’s second church was built in 1917, in Scranton. The capsule was opened Dec. 16, 2023, in front of spectators at Scranton Attendance Center.

Anyone interested in history will find this collection fascinating. Everyone is welcome to come view some local history, reminisce, and share memories with others.

There will be an opportunity to participate in a 50/50 raffle and to purchase a $50 chance for the 1994 Honda Gold Wing drawing.
