Balancing desires, needs and space

What’s been identified as desirable and necessary in a potential parish center building project will demand considerable creativity in connecting it with the existing church and fitting into limited space around the church.

Thirty parishioners gathered Jan. 4 to review project priorities developed at an earlier meeting and to see space needs for a project as determined by the architectural consultant, Gary Kucko of Eau Claire.  The most significant — and largest — elements would include a gathering space and a parish hall, as well as offices. The architect will now conceptualize plans of how all the various elements might fit together.
