After more than 150 years, St. Joseph Church in Rush was closed April 27 following a Mass under a tent in the church parking lot. Ahead of Mass, archival material that symbolized the people, history and events of St. Joseph Parish was brought to the front of the church, and following Mass, a ribbon was tied on the front doors to symbolize its permanent closure. The church has been unused since 2022 due to serious structural problems.
