Fixing St. John's

Saint John the Baptist Church is one of the enduring landmarks of Manayunk. You've most likely gazed upon its grandeur whilst sitting in traffic on the Schuylkill, praying for an intervention. You may not have noticed its deteriorating facade, particularly cracks in the spire. Officials will erect scaffolding around the church and install weatherproofing measures to combat the winter until restoration efforts can begin in earnest in the spring. [Rox.
