On Saturday, September 19th, NMR Principal, Dan Rossetto and Project Architect, Jennifer Lees attended a Holy Mass and groundbreaking to celebrate the reconstruction of the parish’s new church home. Hundreds gathered in the parking lot of the building site in Weed, CA for the ceremony officiated by Bishop Jaime Soto of the Diocese of Sacramento.
A native of Weed, NMR Principal Dan Rossetto feels privileged to support his childhood parish by designing a gathering place for worship that inspires reverence and adulation. The 15,000 sq. ft. building is scheduled for completion in September 2016. While slightly smaller than the original church, the modern and elegant design of the new structure accommodates the present day needs of the parish, and offers state of the art sustainable, building systems performance. A literal rebirth from the ashes of devastation, Holy Family Catholic’s steadfast and determined commitment to build again represents the unbeatable spirit of a community that is resolved to rebuild, and to build better than before.
NMR is honored to partner with the Diocese of Sacramento and Father Joshy Mathew from Holy Family Catholic parish to design and reconstruct a new church.
