Catholic Church of St. Peter – St. Peter, MN

After the destruction of their original facility in a tornado in the spring of 1998, the congregation began planning to relocate the facility in the country outside of St. Peter. The facility incorporates an elementary and preschool for 200 children, a 1,000-seat nave and a 100-seat chapel. The nave features suspended ceilings which form a 44-foot high vault using wood dividing strips supporting perforated metal panels that are acoustically transparent.
