How St. Gregory the Great Catholic School plans to spend $7M

St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church in greater Bluffton is planning a major expansion project that would add a new $7-million, nearly 30,000-square-foot muti-purpose building adjacent to existing facilities just north of U.S. 278. The new building — called the Parish Life Center — will provide a gymnasium and cafeteria for the school, overflow space during services and events, meeting rooms, and a venue for wedding receptions.

Watch through this video to see how more than 5,000 acres became what is known today as Sun City.
