Over the weekend, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced the closing of 3 churches. These churches include Incarnation of Our Lord Church which is said to require $263,000 to repair masonry, Our Mother of Sorrows and Holy Savior Church. The archdiocese said in a statement, “This formal, canonical designation means that the churches will no longer serve as worship sites and will close as Roman Catholic churches.”

A liquor privatization bill might actually pass in Pennsylvania this time around. You may be thinking, “I’ve heard this before.” See why it has a chance of becoming a reality.

It’s no secret that Philadelphia school teachers face overwhelming challenges in trying to educate their students. Teachers have had to spend money from their own pockets for supplies. In this latest example of the extreme lack of funding our schools face, teachers are using duct tape to make wiffle balls out of. More here.

Philly lawmakers have put off the vote to spend $7M for a new prison. Find out why here.
