Facility Improvements Project

Providing a barrier-free environment and upgrading interior architecture were key goals accomplished by the Facility Improvements Project. The project included the installation of a 3-stop elevator with front and rear opening doors allowing accessibility from the mid-level exterior grade entrance to the sanctuary one-half level up and the parish hall one-half level down. The elevator shaft is carefully integrated between the foundations, and floor and walls of the one hundred year old masonry structure. The project also involves remodeling the restrooms serving the parish hall to provide compete accessibility and to upgrade the finishes. The main level elevator lobby was integrated into a remodel that relocated the reconciliation room and created an inviting glass-walled entrance and narthex.
