Almost a year after a tornado ripped through downtown Portland, the last of four churches damaged in the storm is reopening for Sunday mass.

The First Congressional Church was destroyed in the June 2015 storm.

The new church is a near replica of the original, which was built in 1877 and was listed on the national register of historic places.

Sunday's service starts at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.
