Electrical work to repair wiring damaged by a lightening strike last June wrapped up at the end of April, and a crew was on site Monday through Wednesday this week repairing the church’s roof. The nearly 100-year-old church looked likely to be decommissioned and demolished until a community group, Friends of St. Patrick’s Church Spring Fork, secured a lease through the Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City that will keep the building alive. Mabel Bockelman, a group member, said donations have helped pay for the roughly $35,000 in construction costs. “Anything anybody can do to help is appreciated. Every little bit helps,” Bockelman said.
