St. Bonaventure plans for new parish hall

St. Bonaventure Church in Raeville.St. Bonaventure Parish of Raeville is planning its next extensive project — construction of a new parish hall.
The current hall was built in 1890 to serve as a horse barn for those traveling to mass or to school.
In the early 1930s, when horses were no longer needed for transportation, the building was converted to a basketball court with a dirt floor and later a concrete floor — eventually becoming the parish hall.
The parish is now planning a new building for its social functions.
