DIOCESAN HALL CONSTRUCTION
CONSTRUCTION BEGAN IN SEPTEMBER, 2016 AND
IS ESTIMATED TO BE COMPLETED IN AUGUST, 2017.
Work began on Cathedral improvements in 2012 with hiring of the architectural firm, BHMM.
Our principal architect is parishioner, Mark Miller.
Phase I was construction of a handcap-accessible east entrance, which was completed in January, 2013. This project, funded by the Diocesan Capital Campaign, involved demolition of an unused garage and the Cathedral Manor (photos in panel at bottom of page).
Phase II began in September, 2016 with signing of contract with Swanson Construction, inc. The new Diocesan Hall will include a Gathering Space, more restrooms, a handicap-accessible entrance on the west side of the Cathedral, a Reception Hall and classrooms on the lower level.
Drawings to the left depict external views of the planned Diocesan Hall. Additional drawings are in panel below.
As of June, 2016, $4.7M had been pledged,
with an additional $1.3M needed to complete the project.
Phase III will be removal of the old Sacred Heart school and Phase IV will involve much-needed interior/exterior improvements to the Cathedral.
Drawing below depicts how the Sacred Heart campus will look after completion of Phase III.
Co-Chairs for the campaign are Jim Collins and Jim Tiedje.
