St. Mary Magdalen

    Erhardt Construction broke ground on May 29, 2013 to rebuild St. Mary Magdalen Parish, which burned down in July 2013.

    The 22,000 square-foot church was officially opened for its first Mass on June 8, 2014.
    After the fire, Erhardt worked with St. Mary Magdalen staff to get set up in a temporary worship space and to refurbish its Family Life Center, which was damaged by smoke and water during the fire.
