??    St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bradford, which is in the northeast corner of Harrison County, has proceeded on a $2.5 million project to upgrade and expand their parish facilities.
    The church held a formal ground breaking ceremony after its 11 a.m. Mass Sunday, November 2, and this last week, workmen used earth moving equipment to start the ground work itself.
    The project will turn the present parish hall, which is across the church, and on the west side of Farmer’s Lane, into a Religious Education Center, and will include an addition to the front of the present building.
    The part of the building that was the parish hall will be all classrooms after the renovation.
