St. Paul’s Catholic Church

St. Paul Parish had outgrown their existing sanctuary and needed to expand for future growth. To accomplish this, the existing sanctuary was razed and the new building was designed to tie into the existing gymnasium and school structures. The updated facility includes a new 1,000-seat sanctuary, a gathering space, conference rooms, liturgical support spaces and shell space for a future administration area.

New exterior components were selected to create a high-performance building while matching the look of the existing structure. Stained glass and masonry components were salvaged from the former church, restored and reinstalled in the new facility to further blend the new with the old.
