Local parish takes on restoring of Conneaut chapel

Santa Maria Magdalena Catholic Church on the Hilltop has taken on the challenge of restoring a Catholic chapel built in the early 30s on the grounds of Conneaut Lake Park.

Since being a Catholic Chapel it has been used for various Christian faiths and recently is vacant. Father Victor Cianca, pastor, is attempting to restore this Mission for Holy Mass. He has renamed the Chapel, "Christ the Saviour on the Lake."

Father Cianca travels to Conneaut for Sunday Mass at noon and returns for 5 p.m. mass in Pittsburgh.

With the generous support of Pittsburgh volunteers and a warm response of the Conneaut Faithfull they are hoping to have a dedication in early fall. For more information call the Parish Office at 412-586-5621.
