St. Anne Catholic Community Celebrates Groundbreaking for New Commons Complex

As student ambassadors from St. Anne Catholic School shot confetti cannons into the air, Father Al Sinasac, St. Anne pastor, prayed for the safety of workers and sprinkled holy water onto the future building site of the new St. Anne Catholic Community Commons Building, Community Center, and Parking Garage, during groundbreaking ceremonies in May 2019. Vaughn is serving as the construction manager for the $20.8 million project, designed by Kirksey Architecture. The 138,000 SF facility is expected to be completed by August 2020. The commons building will include a gymnasium, multipurpose room for enhanced learning and a performing arts stage. The renovated athletic fields will feature a 330-foot by 165-foot soccer field, expanded and multi use rubberized track, and softball field for dual school and parish use. The community center will contain multipurpose rooms for ministries and a three-story parking garage with 300 parking spaces. According to Danielle Aleman, director of advancement and admissions at St. Anne Catholic School, this is the first parking garage constructed for a parish in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
