Hord Architects was chosen as Associate Architects to Franck & Lohsen Architects of Washington, D.C for this brand new parish church dedicated August 2012. The church features a pair of copper bell-towers with asymmetrical spires and a primarily Romanesque language with Gothic influences. The 1,100 seat nave is laid out in a Latin cross plan with vaulted ambulatories and classical mouldings. The phenomenal marble altar and reredos were salvaged from a church in another diocese. This building is approximately 29,000 square feet and includes a balcony, narthex, sacristy and baptistery. An adjoining parish hall was also built.
