This historic 1950s project consists of a new narthex/connector between the existing sanctuary and the newer, 1980s parish hall/gym of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Brunswick, Georgia. The 3,121 SF addition includes a new, open 1,589 SF narthex with seating for up to 150 people, a new confessional, restrooms and connector from the sanctuary to the parish hall. The historic church’s mid-century modern style was the inspiration for this narthex. The parish is excited to have this new welcoming addition to greet congregants, and to tie the campus together.
