St. Bridget’s Catholic Church

River Falls, WI

The first phase of three planned additions at the Parish of St. Bridget was completed in 2007.  Matching materials and design elements from the original building integrated the addition with the existing church.

A new entrance with a courtyard was created off a large fellowship hall, which provides an outdoor space for activities to be held during the summer months. The courtyard also reinforces the progression into the worship area.  It provides a transitional and contemplative area for visitors as they enter the church.  A new kitchen facility was added to increase available space and functionality.  Future phases will address liturgical needs including doubling the size of the worship space and adding a larger chapel.
