FEATURES

  • The new church is a total of 33,000 SF which includes the main part of the church and a lower level where the offices and meeting rooms are located.
  • The nave seats 750 while the daily chapel seats 100 people. The chapel is noted for its very unique roof lines.
  • Code height limitations challenged the design team’s creativity in determining the main structure. Orndorf used steel in a light and creative way. Walls were veneered with a concrete stone and concrete cast stone that mimicked perfectly the stone and limestone materials of older buildings.
  • The church has earned a reputation in the circle of the religious as the “Jewel of the Archdiocese”.
