Some current projects

Saint Mary’s Academy and College
New Church for the Society of Saint Pius X
Saint Mary’s, Kansas

Designed to replace the historic Immaculata Chapel Ruins, this entirely new Church will be built at the very heart of the SMAC campus. It’s Gothic architecture embraces and extends the Church’s architectural heritage. The Church is situated within the campus such that it forms the focus of each of the surrounding schools while presenting all the Academy and College to the town of Saint Mary’s and the broader, surrounding countryside. Future and current buildings are all organized with respect to the new Church.

New Church – 24,000sq. ft.
Seats 1,300

Some portfolio

Ukrainian Catholic Church of Our Loving Mother
Conyers, Georgia

Designed under the auspices of Bishop Robert Moskul, Eparch of Parma, this small church is designed to be quite dramatic. The church is sited in a meadow of rolling farmland and is designed in a manner that fully participates in the Eastern theology of the church as an icon of Christ’s Mystical Body. This project began as a commission while James McCrery was principal at Franck Lohsen McCrery Architects. The commission is now a current project at McCrery Architects. Groundbreaking is slated for Autumn 2009.

The project awaits approvals from the local jurisdiction.
