INWOOD, W.Va. - Berkeley County's schools aren't the only buildings faced with rapid growth. Some churches are feeling the crunch.
In just 15 years, the congregation at St. Leo Roman Catholic Church in Inwood has grown from 100 to 1,600 people. This week, the Rev. Brian Shoda announced his plan to build anew.
"We're going to build a whole new parish facility, everything," Shoda said. "When this was built in 1982, there was about 100 people. Now we've got about 670 families. It's really growing. It's wonderful."
The existing building is on about six acres. On Monday, the church purchased 134 acres of farmland about two miles from the current site on Sulphur Springs Road.
