Please join us to hear an architect’s understanding of the theory and philosophy of designing church environments on Sunday morning at 9:15 am. Peter Schmelzer, an architect and a member of our parish, has designed numerous worship spaces, and was involved with the design of the cross that hangs over the altar. In this informal session, Peter will review the nature of our church and discuss why it is the way it is, and how it relates to church designs of the past.

“When you visit the school, I’m sure you’ll be as proud of our students as we are. What helps make their accomplishments possible is the dedication and commitment of our teachers, staff, administrators, board members, parents and volunteers. I’m thankful for them every day, but I want to make a point—at this special time of year for Catholic schools—of publicly extending my deepest appreciation to everyone who makes our school a success.” ~Vicki Kalina Marvin, Principal
