Renderings for the new St. John Catholic Student Center / by Ethan Anthony


The St. John Catholic Student Center is in design with construction planned to commence in 2021. The Center will be composed of a 50,000 square foot student facility and a 10,000 square foot church, seating 400 students for daily Mass. A limestone veneer is planned for the church and brick for the student center. The church design is inspired by the Church of San Ambrosio in Milan Italy, an early Christian church dating back to the fifth Century.

San Ambrosio is also a red brick Romanesque structure with limestone accents. The student center exterior design is also inspired by Romanesque architecture, one of the original traditional Christian styles. Cram and Ferguson are designing the interior of the church in traditional religious furnishings.
