Bishop Heelan's Fine Arts Building Gets Special Blessing

A Sioux City school celebrated the opening of a new building with a special blessing on Tuesday. Bishop Heelan Catholic High School held a dedication ceremony this morning for their new fine arts building, located just across from the current high school complex on Grandview Boulevard. Bishop R. Walker Nickless blessed the new building which is Phase One of a multi-million dollar plan to replace the current Heelan buildings, which were built in 19-49, with modern ones. The new fine arts building has a 634 seat auditorium, chapel, vocal, band, art and resource classrooms, choir practice rooms, support areas and on-site parking. A 33 ft. tall cross serves as the exterior focal point near the entrance.
