St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church in Queens Village, which is 150 years old, will be demolished for a new building instead of repaired, according to an anonymous source who believes the destruction of the church is to partially make space for a developer to use for potential office buildings.

The Rev. Mother Kassinda Ellis, however, maintained during a Zoom meeting among parishioners on May 24, that the building could not be saved because it would cost too much to repair it to modern standards. It instead will be replaced with an energy efficient building.
