The new 50,000 sf church facility was designed to take advantage of the rezoned residential site. Maximizing the use of the small site, the building is designed with the chapel, classrooms and offices on the lower level and worship with parish hall on the main level. The entrance of the church faces inward toward the existing parking which also serves as a Catholic school on the adjacent site. The apse of the church faces the main road, exposing the Gothic Revival details and stained glass windows.
