POTTSVILLE, Pa. - Another church in the Allentown Catholic Diocese is closing its doors.

The former Mary Queen of Peace Church in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, will close on May 14.

Officials say the building is hardly used and has rising maintenance costs.

Mass has been held there once a year since 2008, the same year it was consolidated into Saint Patrick Parish.

Officials say the building will be sold after it closes.
