Fr. Christopher D. Murphy, pastor of St. Stephen the Martyr Church in Middleburg (above), speaks to the Prince William County Planning Commission (at right) Sept. 16. The concept plan for the new church (below) was shown at the meeting.

The Prince William County Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve a special use permit for the construction of St. Katharine Drexel Church, currently a mission of St. Stephen the Martyr Church in Middleburg. The proposal calls for a new church to be built with an elementary school on 28 acres at the intersection of Route 15 and Waterfall Road in Haymarket.

The proposal will go to the county Board of Supervisors in October for final approval.
