Westfield, New jersey


Archdiocese of Newark   

Completion 2021   

15,701 square feet

Originally built in 1972, St Helen’s congregation desired a renovation and addition to their church to complete a multi-phase campus improvement project. Programmatic requirements for a large gathering space with additional seating, and existing structural deficiencies, resulted in a new 650 seat church to be proposed on the footprint of the old sanctuary. An addition between the new worship space and existing administration building accommodates the sacristy, restrooms and new 100 seat daily chapel. Existing stained glass windows and field stone from the existing exterior was salvaged from the original church and incorporated into the new design.
