The Church of the Visitation on Route 33 near Hartfield will dedicate a new 4,000-square-foot expansion to its facility this Sunday at a service of dedication.

The new alterations and additions to the existing facility resulted in expanded seating for worship, a new Reservation Chapel, a new Reconciliation Chapel, a remodeled sacristy and worship space, a new Daily Mass Chapel, new administration spaces, and accessible restrooms for the physically handicapped. 

A covered entry pavilion and storage spaces will complete the new addition. Site work includes additional paved parking spaces and access walks. 

Designed in a similar architectural style to complement the existing building, the new additions include a distinctive new bell tower with carillon, creating a more attractive and inviting appearance from Route 33.

Local architect William Henry Harris assisted the church with the design and Norman Construction Inc. of Mechanicsville provided construction services for the $900,000 project.
