St. Joseph’s Shrine of Katharine Drexel
St. Joseph’s Shrine of St. Katharine Drexel, Columbia Virginia
This proposal consists of the addition of a new wing and renovations to the existing sanctuary. The sanctuary will be revised with the space being raised up by one step and the tabernacle returned to the sanctuary behind the existing altar.
The new wing will contain a separate handicap accessible confessional, handicap toilet, and handicap access to the church. The new entrance will also allow for caskets to be wheeled into the sanctuary, where previously they were carried up a very steep set of steps on the main entry. The new wing will also have overflow and accessible seating available.
