St. Agnes Catholic Church Receives Northern Virginia AIA Design Award

St. Agnes Catholic Church has received a Special Citation in Institutional Architecture from the Northern Virginia AIA Design Awards program. The competition jury commented on the strength of the new church’s connection to the historic town center and integration of liturgical art, noting the project’s “attention to civic design in the connections to the village and integration of art throughout the design.”

Kerns Group’s design provides a strong connection to historic Shepherdstown while establishing a unique identity for the new church. The worship space in the first phase is part of a comprehensive master plan that will eventually accommodate a 900-seat Nave, Education, Fellowship and Administrative programs.
