St. Aloysius Catholic Church
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
This new 850 seat church is organized on a central axis beginning at the bell tower and extending along a tree lined promenade through the new worship space and original church and terminates at the administration building. The new church plan includes a central nave with side transepts, a raised sanctuary platform, choir area and organ, a reconciliation room, baptistry and font, an altar sacristy, cry room, and mechanical / electrical spaces. The original church was renovated to serve as the Parish Hall and also includes a vesting sacristy, restrooms, bridal room, and a hospitality coffee area. The church renovations and additions were part of a Master Plan completed by CJA. A later renovation provided a new raised choir platform surrounding a new custom pipe organ.
