  • I especially like the sheetmetal garage..

  • Is the entire church/school coming down? The last time I was by there, it looked fine. Queen of Peace I mean.

  • Interesting. The church and the community center.

  • Queen of Peace is building a new parish community center. The old community center building sustained severe damage during Hurricane Ike and the parish has been unable to use it ever since. The original church building on the property is also coming down to make room for the new community center building. You can read more about the project and see some proposed renderings at:

    Go to “Capital Campaign Update”. Additional renderings are under the “Brochure” link at the bottom of the page.

  • Lowell:

    Thanks for posting that. Looks like a much needed improvement.

  • The Queen of Peace buildings were knocked down last week. Groundbreaking on the new community center is Saturday, October 2.
