St. Thomas More Church Begins Expansion Project
A ground breaking was held at St. Thomas More Church in Chapel Hill Saturday, May 16 for the parish community’s newest building project. It’s the second phase of a construction plan that began in the late 1990s. The first phase included the new church and middle school, completed in 1998 on the Carmichael Road property that has housed the K-5 grade school for almost 40 years. The new project includes a Parish Center with social hall, offices and meeting rooms; new art and music building; a new gymnasium; athletic fields; additional parking and improved access to the campus.
The expansion will allow St. Thomas More to better serve the more than 3,100 registered families and the approximate 440 students enrolled at the school.
