ODESSA - A special guest was on hand as Saint Mary's School in Odessa unveiled a new look on Wednesday afternoon.
Bishop Michael Pheifer of San Angelo traveled to Odessa to get a sneak peek at the new facility and to offer a blessing for the new school year.
The nearly $700,000 makeover began last year.
Bishop Pheifer spoke to NewsWest 9 and expressed immense gratitude for the community.
"I'm just grateful for all the people in this area for once again, coming together, reaching out and doing marvelous work for Christ and for our Church," Pheifer said.
The new eco-friendly building features more space, a new roof, better lighting and more.
