The Courtyard provides a special and unique atmosphere for the parish family to come together as a faith community.
Our Courtyard is dedicated to children and is designed primarly for standing and any outdoor liturgical event.
A bench with a life-size statue of Jesus as a seven-year-old child provides some seating.
Also in the Courtyard you will see an outdoor Ambo that is used for special ocassions.
The Narthex is the main hospitality area of the church.
In the center of the room stands the Hospitality Table representing the community. Here bread and wine are placed symbolic of everyone participating in the liturgy.
The Catafalque on the left is recessed in the back wall of the Narthex on axis with the Baptistry and the Altar. The bodies of deceased parishioners may be brought here for the vigil. This place is a reminder that the dead are a part of the community of the living and its worship.
