Second Order Goals
Visibility of the Church from the Exterior
- That the church might have more presence – specifically as a church – from nearby streets and from Federal Blvd.
- Church is somewhat hidden currently within the campus of buildings
- That the approach to the church invites all to come, and allows us to prepare our hearts in anticipation for Holy Mass.
