MCADOO -- A church's milestone anniversary was celebrated in Schuylkill County.

A special liturgy and a dinner marked the 125th anniversary of St. Mary's Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in McAdoo Sunday afternoon.

Hundreds of people came out. Some even came from as far as Washington, D.C.

Church members wrote special prayers on knotted ribbons as part of the event.

Members of the church will untie the knots and offer up those prayers at future services.
