Father Michael Schatzle Pastor of St. George Catholic Church

Grace Hebert Curtis Architects was hired to work with the parish on developing a church master plan that would accommodate a new Catholic church for the St. George Community. The goal of the planning and architectural design was to create a welcoming and community oriented environment that would architecturally become a beacon for the Catholic faith community. The church holds 1,200 parishioners, and includes a chapel which fits an additional 120 people. Exterior courtyards are designed at both the main entry and the chapel entry to encourage community interaction. This simple, yet elegant design is a collage of transcendental Christian motifs veiled within the fabric of historic religious archetypes, the Gothic Arch.
