(Sunman, Ind.) – More than a year after groundbreaking, St. Nicholas Education Center is ready to open its doors.

Known as Phase I of the Heritage Project, the education center started going up last April. The Heritage Project also includes the building of a new Fellowship Center complete with a gym and cafeteria.

The education center will feature nine new classrooms, a combination library/music room and a combination STEM lab/art room. Other features include improved accessibility and ADA compliant restrooms and new heating and cooling systems.

The new space replaces the 138-year-old St. Nicholas School that was demolished this past May.

St. Nicholas Parish will celebrate the opening of its new education center with a ribbon cutting ceremony and blessing on Sunday, August 4.

The ceremony will be held at approximately 11:30 a.m., following Holy Mass. Lunch and self-guided tours will follow. All are invited to attend.

For those unable to attend, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the St. Nicholas website.

Additionally, fundraising continues for Phase II of the Heritage Project. To donate, visit
