Holy Trinity Catholic Church recently unveiled a new donor wall that recognizes the hard work and contributions made toward making the Ladera Ranch parish a success.
The wall, located inside the church’s vestibule, contains the names of more than 700 donors who collectively raised millions of dollars to fund the nearly $14-million church, which Bishop Kevin W. Vann dedicated in 2017.
Msgr. Stephen Doktorczyk, vicar general and moderator of the curia, blessed the wall with holy water during a rite of blessing ceremony on Aug. 26. About 250 parishioners were in attendance, including Holy Trinity’s founding pastor, Fr. Reynold Furrell, and its current pastor, Fr. Michael St. Paul.
“We praise the Lord for the gift of our faith, for the gift of this community here at Holy Trinity, and the beautiful church that will be here for decades and centuries to come,” Msgr. Doktorczyk said. “People will continue to embrace and worship God, thanks to your generosity and vision.”
Msgr. Doktorczyk also blessed the new marquee sign fronting the church. The solar-powered sign, designed by Fr. Michael and located at the corner of Terrace Road and Corporate Drive, helps identify the property for motorists and pedestrians.
Following the rite of blessing, the parishioners enjoyed a reception outside the church with live music, refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
