St. Michael Breaks Ground on New Multipurpose Building

St. Michael Breaks Ground for New Multipurpose Building

St. Michael the Archangel High School hosted a ground breaking ceremony for its new 22,000 square foot multipurpose building last week.

St. Michael students, faculty, alumni, and benefactors participated in the ceremony that was held in front of the anticipated construction site. The entire St. Michael student body and faculty witnessed the ceremony, including a blessing from Bishop Robert W. Muench.

This ground breaking represents the beginning of construction for the new St. Michael multipurpose building will largely benefit students and faculty upon its completion. “This building will enhance out physical education and athletics program, and it will also serve as a place for liturgy,” said principal, Ellen Lee. The multipurpose building will include a stage, new locker rooms, a soundproof band room and a black box theater.

After the “turning of the Earth,” committee members and dignitaries attended a light brunch with the Bishop in the gym.

The new building will be located next to the existing gymnasium and used for campus ministry, athletics, band and drama. Guy Hopkins Construction is the contractor with a completion timeline of spring of 2019.
