Archbishop John Nienstedt, second from right, prays a blessing at Saint Agnes School in St. Paul at the beginning of a ground-breaking ceremony Sept. 2 that kicked off a new building project at the school. Thanks to a generous gift of more than $10 million by local philanthropist John Nasseff and his wife, Helene Houle, the school will add a $16.7 million student activities center. It is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2015 and will include a new auditorium plus an expanded gymnasium. Nasseff and Houle were on hand for the groundbreaking, along with their son, Art, and Larry McGough of McGough Construction. From left are Saint Agnes students Anthony Larson (senior), Seamus Ryan (senior) Bridget Hobbs (senior), Angie Nguyen (eighth grade), Malani Sandifer (third), Benedict Berthiaume (third) and Mikael Dahlstrom (fifth). At far right is Father Mark Moriarty, pastor of Saint Agnes.
