St. Anthony of Padua

Ambler, Pennsylvania


The original St. Anthony’s Church was demolished after a devastating fire. The $11M new parish facilities include a 1,200-seat main church, and a new two-story classroom building. The lower level of the church is a parish hall, complete with a full kitchen and toilet rooms.


The main sanctuary of the church features 90’ clear spans in two directions. The building also houses a day chapel, offices, and toilet rooms. A colonnade connects the new building to the rectory.


Along with the central mechanical systems and a building automation system, AEC, Inc. designed all the major utilities from the street to the buildings, including the new storm water collection and discharge systems.
