St. Joseph’s Church

St. Joseph’s Church, in downtown Rochester, was completed in 1846 but was destroyed by fire in 1974.  It’s been designated a City Landmark and the stone shell has been a park since 1980.  It’s still a wonderful piece of architecture and the shell appears to be in relatively good shape.  Prior to the fire, the Church had a 4 AM service for the numerous bakers in Rochester because they had to start work very early.  I don’t know from experience, but they say it was well attended.
