St. Francis of Assisi
Bruce Wardell Architects
This project consisted of 5,530 square feet of new construction, and 4,930 square feet of renovation. Part of the work included renovation of the old parish hall into office space and conference room (the older Ministry Center, now linked physically to Assisi Hall, became classrooms). January 11, 2004, was the date of the dedication of the new Assisi Hall, and it was a major milestone in the life of the parish; Bishop Sullivan of Richmond celebrated Mass with approximately 600 in the congregation. Thus the renovation and expansion of St. Francis, first contemplated eight years before, reached its conclusion.
