St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Parish Hall

The Parish Hall addition at St. Mary Catholic Church provides more activity spaces and ADA accessibility to members of the parish. Matching other downtown buildings, the addition is built out to the sidewalk allowing parishioners to now enter at the same elevation as the sidewalk. This addition offers the option to go up to the gathering space, using the elevator or stairs, or down to the lower level of the church.

The Parish Hall seats 280 people at capacity and includes seven classrooms throughout the addition. Other added spaces include Parish offices, a conference room, a work room, storage area, and accessible restrooms. The prayer garden is accessible from the gathering space.

Location: Grinnell, IA    Religious Denomination: Catholic     Size of Addition: 11,600 square feet
