Atty. Jan Lokuta, originator and host of the annual summer tour of Greater Pittston historic churches says he is planning something different this year. The group will visit only two churches: Saint Michael’s Byzantine Catholic church on North Main Street, Pittston, and The Italian Christian Church, in South Pittston. “But I am spending an hour at each,” Lokuta wrote in an email. “At Saint Michael’s I hope to have the priest give a talk on the church’s icons and possibly an explanation of how they are created and at the Italian Christian Church members of the congregation will sing hymns in Italian.”

In this painting by Brian Keeler, submitted by Lokuta, St. Michael’s is visible.

The date of the tour is to be announced.
