100-year-old Stottville church to hold last Mass

STOTTVILLE — The Church of St. Joseph, a century-old place of worship in this town of Stockport hamlet, will hold its last Mass on Saturday.

Declining attendance at the Stottville church since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 is a primary motivation behind the decision, according to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.
