Framing Faith tells the story of the faith of immigrants and their descendants, spotlighting 10 Catholic churches in the Diocese of Scranton that were closed due to restructuring.

The churches are:

  • SACRED HEART, MAYFIELD
  • ST. ANTHONY OF PADUA, SCRANTON
  • ST. JOSEPH, SCRANTON
  • HOLY FAMILY, SCRANTON
  • ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST, SCRANTON
  • ST. MARY OF THE ASSUMPTION, SCRANTON
  • ST. MARY CZESTOCHOWA, SCRANTON
  • ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST, TAYLOR
  • IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, TAYLOR
  • ST. MICHAEL, OLD FORGE 




The churches have rich ethnic heritages. They are Polish, Slovak, Italian, German, and Lithuanian parishes with long traditions and deep roots. Each church was founded by immigrant groups who came to the coal fields of the Lackawanna Valley with little more than their faith in God. Their churches served as the center of the community and touchstones of the Old Country. Framing Faith traces their histories from small beginnings through baptisms, weddings and funerals to their final celebrations. Throughout the text are images from each church, visual reminders of what was for many an important part of their lives.
