St. John’s School in Brunswick had used the basement of St. John the Baptist’s church as their dining hall and indoor recreation space for many years. Changes to the local building code, and increases in the use of the space resulting from the consolidation of seven parishes to form All Saints Parish, required that they construct a new building to house these functions.
The Multi-purpose Facility has a gymnasium that can also be used as an elementary school dining hall and performance space, meeting room, commercial kitchen, locker rooms, bathrooms, stage, offices, and storage rooms. Using a stone veneer very similar to what was used for the original St. John’s Church, the two buildings will frame the All Saints campus and create a welcoming entrance and relationship for the students, teachers, parishioners, and community.
