Grand Courtyard

People have long gathered together to experience God through beauty and symmetry. And one of the most striking venues for coming together is the CTS Grand Courtyard, a stunning green space framed at one end by the striking bell tower of Sweeney Chapel and surrounded by a canopy of trees. Originally designed as a modern version of a monastic cloister, we envision improvements that will set the stage for welcoming the entire community where people will play, reflect, explore and worship.
