PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Two Roman Catholic churches in the Philadelphia suburbs are closing.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says Immaculate Conception B.V.M. Church in Levittown and St. Gertrude Church in West Conshohocken will shut down. Church officials cited high maintenance costs, saying the churches required $215,000 in upkeep each year.

Parishioners were informed of the closures during weekend Mass.
