At St Joseph Catholic Church and School, a new master plan was developed that allowed for expansion on a site already completely built out. A new modern 2 story education wing was built after removal of an outdated 1 story building. A new wide corridor was added connecting the existing church with relocated parish hall and the new school wing. The church and school are now connected allowing students to go mass without going outside.
