St. Frances Cabrini is a new stand-alone 12,200 SF sanctuary on the existing St. Frances Campus in Lebanon, Tennessee. As with many churches in the surrounding Nashville area, St. Frances has experienced growth and needed to expand in order to support the parish.
The new sanctuary seats 425 with room for expansion for approximately 200. A new entry plaza, parking lot, vesting, sacristy, bride’s room, cry room, choir riser area and storage also have been incorporated.
The structural system encompasses wood glue laminated arches with polished concrete floors and wood decking at the ceiling - all timeless materials. The windows have been designed to accommodate stained glass in the future and a new system of sidewalks will be incorporated to connect all areas on the site. Their current sanctuary on the same site will be repurposed into a Fellowship Hall.
