Pope John. XXIII Parish

Recommendations

General Overview

The original Campus Planning Committee (2002) recommended that facilities be constructed in a phase-by-phase plan to address present and future needs.  The proposed Master Plan includes three phases of Campus Development that provide specific descriptions. The 'fourth' phase includes items that cannot be clearly defined at this time, but that have been addressed as desired functions within the Campus Plan by the Parish community.

The Phase One construction was designed to incorporate as many of the parishioners' top priority needs as possible.  This was accomplished by constructing a multi-purpose facility incorporating an exclusive high quality space for worship and also accommodated space for offices, classrooms, and a social hall.
