The new Entrance addition initiates an inspiring (and efficient) circulation sequence between the original historic Founder’s Wing of St Francis Xavier School with the 1966 Addition of the Providence Wing. A complete lobby renovation includes restoration of the original brick and of the entry stairs of the Founder’s Wing. A full renovation of the first floor restrooms and life safety improvements area also included in this very generous gift form the Domun Dei Foundation.
