Bishop John Barres of the Catholic Diocese of Allentown will preside at a dedication ceremony for the new St. Ann Senior Apartments, Lansford, on Tuesday, April 26, at noon.

The apartment community is located on East Bertsch Street in the borough.

In a $2.7-million federally-funded project, Catholic Senior Housing and Health Care Services converted the former St. Ann School, which was built in 1927, into an apartment building with 17 one-bedroom apartments for low income senior citizens. The school was closed in 1999.
