The St. Gregory church program entailed invigorating the sanctuary and creating a sense of the sacred in that area appropriate to the performance of the liturgy. Additional seating was required, as well as spaces added for a meeting room and choir room. A primary goal was to create a distinctly Catholic presence visible from University drive capable of standing up to the increasing commercial presence on that street. Accordingly, we enlivened the sanctuary by opening the reredos to a reservation at the base of a new tower. A large window at the base of the tower brings in natural light to the reservation and the sanctuary. Additional seating was achieved by incorporating two side porches into the interior. The creation of a large traditional tower facing the street was employed per the parish's aesthetic mandate in order to achieve the required Catholic presence. A large porte cochere was added a the entrance in order to provide covered access to the church, as well as to provide for outdoor gathering at the extensive existing stairs located the entrance.
