St. Mary Catholic Church
Location: Huntley, IL
The St. Mary Parish of Huntley had so dramatically outgrown their original building that they required a new building on a new site. David F. Schultz Associates was commissioned to design a building that would tie older and younger generations together. In order to preserve the familiarity of the original building, the new building incorporated its material and formal pattern language. The brick tone of the original building was retained, as was the use of lancet arches and steep gabled roofs. Statuary and stained glass from the old church were also incorporated into the new building. A beautiful sanctuary provides room for the many parishioners of St. Mary’s Huntley to assemble. The balcony contains a pipe organ and space for a choir. The lower level houses a meeting room and classrooms.
