Phase 1A – St Teresa of Calcutta Center
Scheduled for January
The first phase of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church expansion is approaching completion. The first phase includes an outreach facility, regulation-size sports fields and additional parking.
The St. Teresa of Calcutta Center is planned to open mid-January 2017. This 6,700-square-ft. facility will provide improved space and location for the St. Anthony’s Bread Food Pantry and St. Vincent DePaul ministries. In 2015, the St. Anthony’s Bread Food Pantry served 17,882 people and the St. Vincent DePaul ministry paid out $320,000 in financial assistance to those in need. The St. Teresa of Calcutta Center will provide additional space for other growing ministries. The parking expansion is anticipated to be substantially complete by the third week of December which will increase safety and security for St. Anthony parishioners, students, visitors and staff.
Water and Electrical Utility lines are 90% complete and concrete around the St. Teresa of Calcuta Center is complete, while work continues on internal utilities.
The Parish Staff used their monthly staff meeting to thank our construction crew with an old fashion hamburger cook-out.
Even with all the rain we are progressing nicely on Phase One of construction. The Outreach building has a roof and the exterior walls will go up this month. Site work continues on the sports fields and parking. Phase 1B clearing continues on the site near the Sanctuary with grading and utility work in process.
We were fortunate to save some money on phase 1a and through some negotiations with our builders, can now incorporate the work needed for the Rectory and the 10 year old Sanctuary audio. Work on the Rectory will begin in January and will allow us to house more clergy which we so desperately need.
Now that the rain has stopped, the continued clearing of the land has progressed quickly. For any questions about this project, please contact David Craig at email@example.com.
On May 9th, construction crews arrived at St. Anthony to begin clearing our adjacent property in preparation for our new Outreach Facility, sports fields and additional parking.
The Outreach Facility will be the new home of St. Anthony’s Bread Food Pantry, which served over 18,000 people in 2015, and the parish chapter of St. Vincent de Paul Society, which assisted over 4,900 people with over $320,000 in emergency financial support last year. The Outreach Building will also feature additional meeting rooms and office space.
The Sports Fields will be relocated and expanded to include a regulation-size football field, in addition to athletic space for cross country, soccer, softball, and baseball. On a daily basis, nearly 1,400 students, parents, parishioners and staff benefit from St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School’s fields.
Additionally, approximately 300 parking spaces will be added to serve over 6,000 registered families that attend St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church.
