Worth County -- An Albany church continues celebrating Saint Patrick's Day, the holiday for which it gets its namesake.

Members of Saint Patrick's Episcopal Church are still wearing green. It's the very first time they are celebrating the holiday weekend in a newly built sanctuary. A year ago this weekend, the church broke ground for a new church on an 11-acre property off Old Dawson Road.

The church started 48 years ago and for a long time it was located on a tract of land donated by WALB News Ten. They've since moved to a bigger and better location.

"We started out with ten families, which was about 20-25 members, and it's grown on up since then," said founding church member George Whittlesey.

"Last year when you were with us we were breaking ground on our new facility. This is our fifth week now here in the new building, and the congregation is very excited about it," said Father James Bullion.

The new building features a kitchen and temporary sanctuary. The church hopes to build again and have an even bigger sanctuary built within the next five years.
