About This Project

In 2021, St. Paul Parish in Olathe, Kansas (Archdiocese of Kansas City, KS) commissioned JNKA to develop a 77,000 s.f. long-range Master Plan design of a new 1300-seat, traditional Catholic church, with new parish offices, kitchen and parish hall below the church, an enclosed courtyard (inspired by the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in Rome) between the existing school and church, and new preschool classrooms, gymnasium, Catechesis of the Good Shephard atrium, and Youth Room. From 2022-23 JNKA completed the Schematic Design and Design Development Phases for the Phase 1 church building, and the Construction Documents are currently being produced for groundbreaking in Spring of 2024. Construction of the new church is expected to be completed in 2025.
