The new church’s seating capacity is 700, which is needed for the rapidly growing parish that is located at 13713 FM 969 in far east Austin. The new church is the third in Austin’s eastern corridor to be completed thanks to the Encountering Christ Capital Campaign. For Mass times and more information, visit www.sbccaustin.org.
