The Church of the Advocate is a National Historic Landmark continuously serving its congregation for worship in addition to providing campus ministry to Temple University and a wide array of social services and arts programs to North Philadelphia residents. Kelly/Maiello Inc. developed the master plan and subsequent designs for the restoration and adaptive reuse of this Episcopal Church complex’s historic buildings, providing program space for a full range of Church and community functions. The church sanctuary functions as a place of worship, as well as an art sanctuary, performance space for artists and writers and a meetings/events, space, while The Paul and Christine Washington Family and Community Center provides office space for community outreach programs, classrooms, and a gymnasium.
