Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church had outgrown their historic downtown location; they contracted Nabholz to demolish their 86-year-old sanctuary and construct a new church two miles south.
In thirteen months, Nabholz delicately deconstructed the existing church — preserving many elements to be incorporated into the new sanctuary — and constructed a new 14,597-square-foot church.
By enhancing a traditional design with integrated lighting and audio, adequate space for a growing community, and then reincorporating elements (such as 90% of the stained-glass windows) from the old building, Nabholz delivered a church that honors the past while making room for the future of this parish.
Features of the new church include
- New two-story, 547-seat sanctuary with balcony
- Narthex and sacristy
- Classrooms and meeting spaces
- Choir room
- Administrative offices
- Restrooms and storage areas
