This Parish Hall was conceived as a solution to two problems; the parish needed new facilities for education, recreation, and administration, and the existing buildings serving the community lacked central organization and stylistic unity. The new Parish Hall was able to bridge these gaps, providing needed programming and developing an architectural language that can bring unity to the campus. This language draws from the local, historic vernacular, smoothly integrating with its residential surroundings, while providing for important points of ornament and symbolism, such as Our Lady in the high niche of the central gable. The multiple heights in the roofline help anchor the building with its smaller scaled surroundings.
