St. Albert the Great Catholic Church | Parish Activity Center

Austin, TX

The proposed 11,500 sf new Parish Activity Center (PAC) building at St. Albert the Great will alleviate long-endured pressures for adequate multi-use space for the parish. The centerpiece of the new facility is the parish hall planned to seat 350-400 in a banquet setting or up to 650 in assembly configuration. A commercial kitchen,  meeting rooms of different sizes, restrooms, entry lobby, and outdoor cooking porch complement the main room. Designed to complement the materials and forms of the two newest buildings – the church and the education building – the new facility is positioned to enhance the pedestrian path to the central plaza that lies at the heart of the campus. Intended for both regular use by parish ministries and as a form of community outreach to organizations outside of the parish, the new PAC is designed to be extremely functional and versatile.
