Wanting to enhance their existing church structure, St. Mary Parish needed to add a large gathering room, remodel the reconciliation room, and increase the size of the sacristies and restroom facilities. The design strategy sought to preserve the art glass, liturgical elements, and wood detailing while dramatically changing the church’s interior. The parishioners also wished to clearly designate the church as the heart of the campus. A new bell tower and ornate custom entry doors mark the church as the primary building in the parish. The new entry room was designed to focus around the centrally located font in preparation for services.
