ELKHORN — St. Patrick Parish showed off for the public at an open house Feb. 21, culminating nearly a yearlong renovation project.

Ground broke on March 16, 2014, and the congregation held its first Mass back in the church on Christmas Eve.

The new look includes offices, five meeting rooms, a fellowship hall, a gathering space between the church and the offices and handicapped-accessible bathrooms, which the church didn't have before.

The fellowship hall will be used for various parish events, including funeral luncheons and the St. Joseph Table event.

The old rectory was torn down last March to make room for the expansion. The rectory used to house church offices and a home for the pastor. The latter now lives elsewhere, and the offices, as of late January, are in the newly expanded church.

The parish used St. Patrick School for services and other gatherings during construction. The school is not operating, but the building is used for religious education, retreats and more.

See more photos of the new space in the upcoming March 1 print or e-edition of Walworth County Sunday.
