View of the new church building for St. John the Baptist Church located in Ottsville, Pennsylvania

Text Box: St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church outgrew their church building just north of Lake Nockamixon in Bucks County. PA To             accommodate new growth, the church constructed a new building on land at their school property on Route 412.  The new one-story church building has a gross floor area of 16,500 square feet including the Main    Sanctuary with seating for 875 parishioners, Daily Chapel with an additional 105 seats, Spiritual         Conference Room and      Religious Education      Classrooms, all radiating from the Narthex that       provides a welcoming        location where people can gather and fellowship.

The structure of the       Sanctuary consists of      concrete    masonry exterior walls with structural steel main framing supporting heavy timber trusses     spanning the width of the Sanctuary.  The remainder of the structure is framed with steel, cold-formed metal, and conventional wood  framing with masonry veneer exterior walls. The Bell Tower rises above the Baptistry, reaching a height of 60 feet.

Completed Spring of 2003
