St. Jude Church - Peoria, IL

January 4, 2023

After conducting a complete master plan review of their facility, the St. Jude Catholic Parish decided to completely demolish its existing church building and rebuild it.  This new building will replace the existing church with an increase in sanctuary seating from 450 to approximately 800 and will better accommodate liturgical celebrations.  Also included is a new rotunda with a baptistry, through which parishioners will enter the church.  Additional features include meeting spaces, restrooms, a corridor storm shelter, new entrances with a drop-off canopy, and new HVAC and electrical systems.


Today found roof trusses being swung and set and Summit Masonry setting block.
