The parish hall for St. Mary, Sutton, Nebraska was blessed on Sunday, June 16th by Bishop James Conley. The blessing of the hall followed the Sunday Mass, which was also celebrated by Bishop Conley with pastor of St. Mary's, Father William Holoubek, concelebrating. Afterwards, dinner was served for 200 parishioners and guests.
In his homily, Bishop Conley noted how difficult it is to construct something new to look old and that St. Mary's has accomplished a great feat that the new hall blends so well with the historic church built over 100 years ago. The exterior architecture was designed to complement and protect the integrity of the existing church. This was accomplished by following the same lines as the church and matching the brick and wooden roof shingles. The interior includes classrooms on the lower level and a large hall and kitchen on the main level to serve the parish's many needs.
Clark Architects Collaborative 3 is proud to see another project come to completion. Congratulations goes to St Mary's and Father Holoubek for their hard work and efforts.
