St. James Catholic Church

The expansion and renovation of the original 35-year old church building was made possible as a result of community support. This update provided 5,300 SF in new facilities and 16,000 SF of renovated space, all of which was designed to provide the collaboration of traditional and modern elements to accommodate a growing church body. Updates include the centering of the main altar, a new baptismal font, as well as acoustical enhancements within the sanctuary.

The exterior courtyard was enclosed and high windows and ceilings were installed to provide a more welcoming and inviting entrance and central gathering space. Other additions include offices, restrooms, new roofing and updated utilities.
