  • The project
    A parish center is being built at 218 S. Maple Ave. in Hannibal. The two-level structure will feature 5,400 square feet.
    The parish offices will be housed in the new building. In addition there will be ample space for meetings and funeral luncheons.
    There will be a kitchenette, restrooms and storage space for parish records on the lower level. The upper level will have a banquet room with seating for 100 people, a full kitchen and restrooms.
    What’s
    happening
    Thanks to a break in the weather, some exterior work has been completed in the last week on the upper-level parking lot.
    A handful of workers were inside the structure performing touch-up tasks Thursday morning.
    “Painters were down there earlier this week,” said Janice Rupp of Holy Family Church. “This week they got concrete poured on the (upper-level) parking lot, but it still has to cure.”
    What’s next
    The driveway and a section of the parking lot on the upper level have yet to be poured.
     
    Anticipated cost
    The projected cost of the construction project is $1,047,000.
    Who’s paying
    The money necessary to pay for the center has already been pledged by church members. The pledges were made over the past year during the “Living our Faith, Building our Vision” fund-raising campaign.
    Projected date for completion
    It was hoped that the new parish center would be ready for use by early 2014.
    The anticipated move into the building is now on hold.
    According to Janice Rupp of Holy Family Church, a moving date will not be set until the contractor says it has completed its work and the building is ready to be occupied.
    Each week, the Courier-Post is documenting the improvements taking place on the parish center. For more information, contact:
