Being a well-established parish in the expanding area of Liberty, Missouri, St. James Catholic Parish found that their space could not properly serve its growing congregation. On one of their most attended mass services, you could regularly find chairs being set in the overflow and lobby areas to accommodate members, often crowding areas that were meant for after-service visiting.  

Architectural blueprints for their new facility were circling for review as early as 2010, so when the building opened its doors in 2019, the community celebrated their official new expanse. The building's unique architectural design and technical capabilities pairs together modern flair and functionality, with traditional beauty. 

Danny Baker, Director of Music at St. James Catholic Church, says he is very excited and pleased with the new audio/visual installments to the facility, and is looking forward to the way it will improve the quality of the services. 

"We are a fairly progressive Catholic Church, so being able to utilize new systems and styles, while still looking and sounding like a Catholic Church, has been great. Throughout this whole process, it has been a balance between modern and traditional.", says Baker.

AV Solutions designed and installed state of the art audio and video systems in the main sanctuary area, lobby, conference rooms, and fellowship hall. The building's unique architectural design aimed to incorporate the aesthetic look, as well as the sound quality of a traditional Catholic church, while also having modern technological capabilities. This offered AV Solutions the unique challenge of limiting the visibility of the speaker systems and projection screens in the main sanctuary. 

"One of the selling points (in working with AV Solutions as our AV integrator) was that they offered 24/7 help around the clock. If a mass service is on a weekend and you need immediate help, it is great to know that there will be someone there available to help", says Baker.
