Building on a master plan to accommodate future growth.


For over five years, St. John Neumann Parish in Sunbury grew by over 100 families per year to more than 1,000 total family members. They added and expanded programs for religious education, faith formation, spiritual growth and social activities and therefore needed more space to accommodate these programs.

MA was selected for a third time (first to do their original church building in 1982, then a new larger sanctuary for them in 2003) to work with the parish on master planning with a new Parish Center, the renovation of their existing Parish Hall and a sanctuary expansion. The new center houses classrooms, a choir room, a nursery, a few offices, and ministry storage as well as a meeting /event space that can hold 300 people with a full service kitchen.
