Historic Baltimore church, damaged by earthquake, closed for repairs

August 24, 2011

A historic Catholic church in Baltimore has been closed because of damage from the earthquake that shook the east coast of the US on August 23.

St. Patrick's church in Fells Point, built in 1898 to serve the oldest parish in the Baltimore archdiocese, sustained severe damage to its steeple, and engineers said that the entire building would be unsafe for use until the steeple is rebuilt--a process that will take several weeks.
