Taking advantage of the natural terrain, the site was organized around outdoor spaces and views onto the central open space. A linear waterfeature extends from the bell tower to the main gathering plaza and is framed by Date Palms and Liquidambar trees. The gathering plaza features a prayer maze, trellises and a large Coast Live Oak, as the focal point. Devotional Gardens and pilgrimage paths intertwine between the various buildings on the site. The buildings include the Main Church, an intimate Chapel, a Day Care Center, the Social and Catechetical Center, a Youth Center and a Parish office building form a village-like setting which expresses the entire Church community.
