The “Our Lady of Lourdes” chapel, after hosting only two services for Joy Junction, fell victim to a plumbing accident. The basement slowly filled with water. As adobe and water do not mix well, the back section of the church, including much of the roof was damaged. It has been encased behind a chain link fence for many years.
Current plans call for a new church to be built, with certain restrictions. The new church will seat many more people. It will also incorporate as much of the existing church as possible and will be constructed in the same, or similar, architectural style as the current structure. Once finished, this chapel will be available to the community.
