 Parishioners at St. John Catholic Church in Benwood have a little more to celebrate this Christmas, as they’ve been given the first drawings of what their new church will look like over the weekend.

The new church will be built in the same place where their old church sat, before being destroyed by flames that ravished the church back in March.
