Best Historic Preservation Project

St. Agatha St. James Parish Church

Project Description

A historic Roman Catholic Church, St. Agatha-St. James Parish called upon Mara Restoration to restore and refresh the exterior of the Church while allowing parishioners and guests to safely continue visiting and utilizing the facilities. A project of this size located at an extremely busy intersection required every detail to be examined and reexamined. With a focus on accessibility, safety, communication and maintaining a discreet, well-presented image on site, the project team ultimately revealed a freshly detailed, weather-resistant fa├žade that will allow the Church to continue to minister to the spiritual needs of the diverse, thriving community of West Philadelphia.
