After nearly two years of construction, the new St. Michael Church was dedicated in a special celebration June 16.
Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz joined St. Michael pastor Father Richard Sullivan for the Rite of Dedication.
The 32,000-square-foot building can accommodate 1,200 people in the church pews and another 300 chairs can be added. The church — designed by lead architect Mark Trier from JRA Architects — is replacing a building that could only house 360 people.
The Jeffersontown parish has about 1,200 registered members.
