Growing church envisions new facility
The current Student Center was erected in 1968 to host activities for Louisiana Tech University students. Sarah Regan, St. Thomas communication committee member, said it is the hub of many church activities, such as the annual Women’s Guild gumbo supper and quarterly potluck with an attendance that exceeds the Student Center’s capacity. The gumbo supper must now be prepared and served for take-out at the Civic Center.
“The parish has grown so quickly, and the kitchen facilities just aren’t adequate for the number of meals that need to be prepared,” Regan said.
