As our faith family continues to grow, so does our need for more
space. The need for additional social, meeting, office and storage
space has been well chronicled. In addition to the necessary growth
of our facilities, our worship area is also in need of updates.
With the infusion of capital from the Home Campaign, these areas of
concerns can be addressed.
This campaign will enable St. Francis of Assisi to service our
community of faith for the foreseeable future.

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic ChurchFairfield Glade,
TennesseeBy challenging the parish to dream big, we will enable
ourselves to construct a 6,000-square-foot addition to Sheehan
Hall. This project will provide our parish with additional
social and meeting space, while also adding much needed storage
areas. In addition to the Sheehan Hall upgrades, the Challenge Goal
will give us an opportunity to add a 600-square-foot addition to
the existing church office. The office project will provide
additional offices, conference and meeting rooms, and storage
Plans include:• Doubling the capacity of Sheehan Hall to
roughly 300. This would greatly increase the space for parish
social functions. A second level below Sheehan Hall would provide
meeting facilities for 60-70 individuals. It would also provide for
additional storage and a ground-level entrance and egress into the
building from the parking lot.
• Providing storage for PPC committees and organizations, CCW,
music, blanket, kitchen, social, worship and liturgy, Knights of
Columbus and environmental for banners, flower stands, crosses,
pictures, seasonal (crèche, Easter), etc.
• Adding on to the existing parish office to bring all parish
employees under one roof. This will increase office, meeting and
• Renovating of the current church worship space, with potential
to upgrade the altar, carpeting, choir area and more.
