20 Year Master Plan

Our Proposed Campus Plan


In looking to the future of the parish, we have to try to envision what our needs might be over the course of the next twenty years. Our growth is relatively steady, but we can anticipate that it will continue on upward trend as the overall population of Atlanta and Sandy Sandy Springs grows. Our present rate of growth is about 3% a year. So, planning for the future, we need to be mindful of the possible needs of our faith community and of the need to be good neighbors in our community.


We are proud to share our master campus plan with our parishioners and neighbors.


Update - October 31, 2018

To better address the concerns we heard from our neighbors and other individuals who attended the community meeting held at Holy Spirit Prep on Tuesday, October 30, Holy Spirit Catholic Church and Holy Spirit Preparatory School have decided to delay the date for filing an application for a Conditional Use Permit with the City of Sandy Springs. This will also enable us to factor in comments from the Cities of Sandy Springs and Atlanta. We will continue to keep everyone informed on this page.

At any point during this process, questions can be emailed to, and answers will be posted below.

Proposed Parish Improvements


A three-story parking deck with 250 additional spaces, eliminating overflow parking on neighboring streets


Family Life Buildings

One, and possibly at some point a second, 20,000 sq. ft. building to include dedicated space for teens and young adults. While we don’t anticipate needing these, in order to be as complete as possible in projecting the far future, we have included them.



A 12,000 sq. ft. rectory for retired clergy who are no longer in active ministry but who seek to live in community and provide pastoral service to both Holy Spirit Church and Holy Spirit Prep from time to time.


Roadway Through Campus

A two-lane roadway through the campus from Mount Paran to Northside Drive, connecting to the parking deck and proposed HSP developments (click here to learn more), designed to help ease congestion on Sunday mornings and holidays.


Frequently Asked Questions

  • How will this project impact our tree canopy?
    We are committed to minimizing to the highest degree possible the impact on out tree canopy. To that end, we plan for a tree study that to assess how we can preserve valuable trees on our property.
  • Will new construction alter the residential quality of our neighborhood?
    Our neighborhood is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city! We're committed to maintaining that quality. Our property sits on the site of a former quarry, forming a bowl in the neighborhood that drops steeply down from street level. Much of our existing campus isn't visible from street level on Mount Paran Road, and, combined with a proposed 60-foot buffer of existing trees and landscaping, our proposed development won't be visible either.
