Holy Savior Catholic Church is one step closer to opening their new campus. The group broke ground for the site Sunday morning at 13th and Chautauqua in Wichita.
The $10 million project will result in a new church that will seat 500 and include a pre-K through eighth-grade school.
Church officials say the site will help spread their message throughout Wichita.
“We want to help this part of our city,” said Bishop Carl Kemme, Catholic Dioces of Wichita. “They’re important to us, the ministry of the church — particularly with education — to offer a quality education for those who choose it in the best of our Catholic tradition.”
The new campus is expected to open by August of 2019. Until then, Holy Savior church services will be held at the Saint Peter Claver campus on North Indiana. The school will stay at its current location.
