Planned Development for Sacred Heart Church

As of May 25, 2009, the Sunalta Community Association website reports that "a large addition is in the planning process for the church known as the Narthex. This area is planned as a gathering area before and after services. The development approval process is underway with the city and construction is hoped to start this summer."

It looks like the addition would be on the south side. Sacred Heart church was built in 1930, replacing an earlier church immediately to the west. The steeple was added in the 1950s.

More about Sacred Heart church. The new narthex is under construction now, and a columbarium is part of the addition - see the article. Also news of 100th anniverary celebrations in June 2011 (the current, second church dates from 1930).

Sacred Heart's columbarium first facility of its kind in area
By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald March 5, 2011

The word columbarium is not likely one most people are familiar with today. But the folks at the Sacred Heart Church, at the west end of the Beltline and just outside the downtown core, have come to learn a lot more about it as the Roman Catholic church will become the first in Western Canada to have a columbarium...
