To support the growing youth ministry of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Midland, PSC was hired to help design a new 21,000-SF Youth Activity Center. The center will include a gymnasium, commercial kitchen, showers, offices, classrooms and a central hang out space. While the main need was to create a space for the youth to interact, worship and thrive, St. Ann’s wanted to do more than just meet the needs of their parishioners. They also wanted to create the opportunity to minister to the surrounding community.

The exterior design of the building is fun and youthful with colored wall tiles, a modern sleek look, slat-covered seating area, terraced patio, seating walls, basketball court and a great lawn. The design is meant to encourage congregation, interaction, and create community.

St. Ann’s celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Youth Activity Center on July 28. Construction is projected to take 14 months, allowing the church to start using the facility in Fall 2020.
