Situated on a prominent hillside overlooking the Susquehanna River valley, this new Catholic church replaces a facility that no longer met the growing parish’s needs. The design takes advantage of its site and burrows in to the brow of the hill to diminish the mass and hide the lower level parish hall from the main approach road. Operable panels on the lower level provide the required flexibility for a space that doubles as classrooms and a gathering space with generous views to the valley below. The nave provides seating for 700 while an intimately-scaled daily chapel in the adjacent office wing accommodates up to 50 worshipers. An ornate marble altar and reredos that were salvaged from a closed Catholic church in New Jersey provide an appropriate historical and spiritual focus for the sanctuary.
