Ben Hillyer/The Natchez Democrat — Wilmar Construction’s Wesley Pendleton nails together the wood frame for the St. Mary Family Life Center on the corner of Main and Rankin streets. The $2.2 million addition is expected to be complete in July. In addition to the youth center, the Family Life Center will also include an assembly area that would seat 350-400 people and a couple of meeting zones, as well as a nursery space. Due to the size of the building and the amenities it would be equipped with, like showers, for example, the church hopes the space could be used in a time of crisis, such as a hurricane or ice storm, if the need were to arise.
