A Youngstown church is hitting the auction block Saturday.
Immaculate Conception Church on Oak Street will be sold to the highest bidder at the auction that begins at noon Saturday.
The assets are being sold as two different lots, the church and rectory as one and the school administration building as the other.
Most of the contents from the church already have been sold to different churches.
Fr. Kevin Peters said they hope to find the right buyer.
“The concern is that the property is handled with integrity and respect that it is due for being there for over 130 years. And make sure that it is a good, wholesome new owner.”
He said it is not feasible for Immaculate Conception to maintain two sets of properties. The church is merging with Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish to form St. Angela Merici Parish under the Youngstown Diocese parish reconfiguration plan.
