After three years of prayerful study the Benedictine Sisters of Elk County agreed to move forward with plans to close St. Joseph Monastery in St. Marys.
According to a press release, issued on Tuesday afternoon, stated this decision was made on Monday.
As the work of closing moves forward not all the questions have been answered and much work remains.
The Dynamic Dance Competition Company, DDCC, of April School of Dance in St. Marys is excited to begin their competition season this weekend.
The company, directed by Jennifer Blankenship of Kane, will travel to Pittsburgh to attend DanceMakers, Inc.
